Thanks to Ingrid I was compelled to do some research.

First off, what is Botox? “Botox is a natural purified protein,” the ad helpfully answers in the large-print section. “Botox is derived from a bacteria, in much the same way penicillin is derived from mold.”

Well, that’s reassuring. I mean, penicillin—that’s a good thing, right?

It’s not until you delve into the fine print that you learn Botox, otherwise known as botulinum toxin type A, a purified form of a* deadly poison* , “contains albumin, a derivative of human blood.”

The small-print text adds that because of "effective donor screening and product manufacturing processes," there's only "an extremely remote" chance that Botox users will be the recipients of blood-borne viral diseases.

Hmmm. That’s the kind of thing potential customers might have wanted to know a bit more clearly.  

(this is small portions of article found on internet)

Who knew it was poison, not me, thanks Ingrid!!!
