Cyanide is a potent inhibitor of cellular respiration, acting on mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase and hence blocking oxidative phosphorylation. This prevents the body from oxidizing food to produce useful energy. Lactic acidosis then occurs as a consequence of anaerobic metabolism. Initially, acute cyanide poisoning causes a red or ruddy complexion in the victim because the tissues are not able to use the oxygen in the blood. The effects of potassium and sodium cyanide are identical. The person may die within 45 minutes if not treated medically. During this period, convulsions may occur. Death occurs mainly by cardiac arrest.

Bitty 1 3/8 inch tall brown glass empty prop bottle, stoppered with a cork, and labeled with aged paper reproduction of an actual poison label from Howell Drug Company of Silver City, NM. Charm does not contain (nor has it ever contained) cyanide (or any other substance, for that matter). Cork and bail (with attached jump ring) are secured via epoxy and label is sealed onto the bottle for durability.

This listing is for one charm, as described above. Please see my other listings for more poisons, potions, and patent medicine charms.

Domestic postage is $2 (inquire for international shipping). PayPal is accepted and preferred for payment. I will combine ship for multiple item orders. Since the size and weight of my items varies so greatly, just ask for a postage quote!
