What do you think of when you hear the word “toxins”? For some it makes them cry in fear and others may think of the “detox cleanse diet.” In reality, however, toxins are much more than just harmful. In this class we will explore the medicinal use of toxins, which include treating chronic pain, hypertension, diabetes, and cancer. We will also explore the many types of venomous and poisonous animals and hear about the current research done in the field of medicinal toxins!
