Some more info on fluoride from Anne! "The whole reason that they found out that fluoride can help prevent cavities is that beginning in the early 20th century, scientists linked high levels of naturally occurring fluoride in certain community water supplies to low levels of tooth decay. Since then, fluorination has been recognized as an easy way to drastically improve oral health. Actually, parts of India, China, and Africa have areas with high natural fluoride levels in their water, and are taking measures to remove the fluoride. Some countries have programs that fluorinate milk instead of water. There has been more recent evidence that suggested pregnant women should not drink fluorinated water, as it may result in lower IQ scores in their children. But, how much is too much – has not been fully determined. Should you – or should you not drink fluorinate water is a different issue than eating a tube of toothpaste. It should be obvious that eating a tube of toothpaste will make you sick. Thanks again!" - Anne

Bicth I believe a big reason are children there, as it's difficult to control how much tooth paste they swallow

Fluorinated toothpaste makes more sense, since toothpaste usage doesn’t vary as much with weather and activity levels.

Actually, it is not critical for an adult to eat a whole tube of toothpaste, even with high doses of fluoride, because the acute toxicity is rather low. Children could be at risk if they ate high-dose adult toothpaste, but they don't like it anyway because it is usually too spicy. The studies with reduced IQ after ingestion during pregnancy are inconclusive. There is usually a lack of information on co-exposures and the effects on IQ are usually manageable. It says "may result" but this should be emphasized more.

@A normal Duck Yes, if you breathe pure oxygen for too long. Hyperoxemia can cause muscle twitching, seizures and death. The only time you would be breathing pure oxygen is in hospital where your O2 saturation would be monitored (the clip on your finger with a red LED in it has a photosensor which can detect how fast your heart rate is and blood oxygenation by the change in skin tone every time your heart beats) or in an emergency situation where you would be going to the hospital very quickly and will likely get your O2 Sats monitored on the way there. Oxygen toxicity is also a thing when SCUBA diving with nitrox (oxygen enriched air), there are tables for depth and time. Look up Oxygen window if you want to know more.

@Neonic Plaq Not really. It's water soluble. It might give you the shits but it won't give you the death. Unless you consume a really, really large amount. Everything is a poison in a high enough dose. Water and oxygen included.

Imagine if Chubbyemu was in this interview instead. The video's title would probably be ''A Toxicologist Was Invited To An Interview. This Is What Happened To The Video.' Then the starting would be "BH/DB/CE (depending on which initials Chubbyemu would use—CE is most probable) is a 36-year-old toxicologist presenting to the interview with all the answers to questions on Twitter. He tells the director..." He would probably bring saltwater and pure water to conduct his requisite salt-is-attracted-to-water experiments, while saying (for the Visine eyedrop question) "This causes the blood vessels to vasoconstrict, shutting off blood supply to other organs, explaining [patient's] high blood pressure." (for the fluoride toothpaste question) "This can cause Hypocalcemia and Hyperfluoridemia. Hyper, meaning high, Hypo, meaning low, calc pertaining to calcium, fluorid pertaining to fluoride and emia meaning presence in blood. Low calcium presence in blood and high fluoride presence in blood. " 8:00 No no, that doesn't sound very barbaric. That sounds EXTREMELY INHUMANE! Not that the toxicologist in this video was bad! I just saw the title of the video and commented before watching it.

Pharmacists in France are trained to recognize poisonous mushrooms. Here, we're advised to show the mushrooms to a pharmacists before eating them, if there's even a slight doubt. And, if there's even a single poisonous mushrooms in your basket, you should throw it all away, because of cross-contamination

We do have a phobia around mushrooms in our culture, my suggestion is that you don't eat things if you aren't certain what they are, think that goes for anything, foraging for plants, mushrooms or hunting for animals, you need to know what you are eating, plants can contain many deadly poisons, mushrooms could contain amatoxins or others, certain animals and fish can contain toxins and the livers of many fish and carnivores like cat species have toxic levels of vitamin A, just don't go around randomly eating things and be sure you trust someone isn't poisoning you either maliciously or through their own ignorance!
