The use of chemicals containing cyanide(The toxins in vitamin B17) in the petrochemical industry

Cyanide exposure in industry

Cyanide is a toxic substance into the body through the mouth, inhalation or absorption through the skin and eyes. We can get this poisoning from accidental or incidental. Since today with the use of chemicals containing cyanide (Toxins in laetrile or Vitamin B17) in various industries such as Manufactured in stainless, Smelting silver or gold, Metal plating, The petrochemical industry, Manufacture of pesticides.

They also found chemicals in the home, such as nail polish, which will contain acetonitrile and these compounds, can release this compounds, burning the plastic, poly-urethane material, nylon mat which these can cause cyanide (The toxins in amygdalin, laetrile or Vitamin B17) gas as well. Of course it is very dangerous if inhaled into the body. So far that it is not you.

The use of chemicals containing cyanide(The toxins in vitamin B17) in the Metal plating

The toxins in vitamin B17 affect the body's death.

Once we receive cumulative toxicity of cyanide poisoning (Toxins from Vitamin B17) are often abnormal in the brain, may show symptoms of psychosis, optic nerve degeneration. For those who have been highly this toxin. It can cause acute toxicity of the body, especially brain cells to hypoxia, patients who have seizures, unconsciousness and respiratory disorders. If medical treatment is slow, it will be fatal.

hydrogen-cyanide (toxic form of Amygdalin, Laetrile, or vitamin B17) is found in cassava

Cyanide poisoning near us, but plants and humans are Substance reduce the toxicity of it. Such as Cassava contains enzymes linamarinase, which it can be decomposed substance linamari into hydrogen-cyanide (The toxins in Vitamin B17). In the human body can get rid of this toxin by the enzyme rodanese (or Beta-cyanoalanine synthase). It will change the hydrogen-cyanide into thiocyanate, which is less toxic and excretion in urine.

This toxin in vitamin B17 can reduce by heating

There is also a way to reduce the toxicity of it in plants in several ways such as heating, cooking, etc. The level of cyanide (The toxins in Vitamin B17) that is toxic to humans (lethal dose) is 0.5 to 3.5 milligrams per kilogram. To determine the amount of this toxin by Acid hydrolysis in plants and animals, found that the amount of these toxins in cassava has a very high level in all parts of plants (240-1,040 ppm)

So if we want to remove parts or products of cassava, vegetables and fruits containing cyanide (The toxins in Vitamin B17) was used. You need to detect the amount of it and to reduce the toxicity of this toxin to a safe level before.
