I've got this book about poisons but somehow the ones I find are kinda lame. Either they are some really harmless sounding plant or they can't be treated or only can be treated symptomatically (which I'm not entirely sure what it means, but it doesn't sound very interesting). I've tried googling, but somehow it's difficult to even figure out which terms to use. I've googled and wikied the poisons I've found in my book, but that didn't help so much. It's also a bit difficult to assess the usefulness of the information.
Here's a list of poisons my books suggested that are within the timeframe I want, but someone none of them seem to fit completely.
Botulism has interesting symptoms but seems to be too obvious near the end of it and also seems a bit overused.
Cinchophen mainly damages the liver and has sucky symptoms, so no good.
Amanita has promising symptoms but apparently can't be treated and is a mushroom.
Savin is a plant and can only be treated symptomatically apparently. Also, the symtoms are all very close together which is bad.
Methanol might work but it's a bit unspectacular.
Phosgene is a gas which isn't no good and most of the symptoms seem to be confined to the lungs and to irritation caused by it.
Dieldrin is a pesticide and has interesting symptoms but can only be treated symptomatically apparently which is a downer.
Endrin same thing.
Ideas anyone? Help greatly appreciated...
