A: Oh, you are greatly mistaken! Cyanides are substances consisting of carbon and nitrogen, which are abundant in nature. They are present in beans, rice, and even in manioc in the form of linamarin and lotaustralin. We should not leave out bitter almonds - the more bitter, the higher the content of cyanide!
A: That means that if cyanides get into your body and you survive, the cyanide will eventually completely leave the body. Cyanides are not stable compounds and therefore do not remain or accumulate in the human body. They are also not carcinogenic, so long-term exposure to small doses has no effect on humans. You cant say that about heavy metals, PCBs, or Asbestos.
A: Of course! The antidote is actually based on the principle of the synthesis of cyanocobalamin, where cyanide is transformed in the human body into harmless vitamin B12, and its excess leaves the body in urine.
A: Well, if you are not viewing this website printed on paper, you do! Your phone's gold coating is made using cyanides, and the same goes for laptops or headphone cables. They are also irreplaceable in the production of many drugs from the pharmacy, car tires, fragrances and environmentally-friendly fumigants.The list goes on and on!
