Pre-harvest conditions of food crops have direct impact on the nutritional and overall quality of harvested foods. Toxins accumulated in crops as a result of irrigation using water with high levels of salts like Chloride and Sodium manifest on leaves and fruits as burns and discolorations reducing expected yield and market value. (...) Investment by stakeholders and governments in knowledge and infrastructure in cold chain management, waste water recycling, advocacy and adoption of resistant crop varieties to harsh climate, pests and diseases will guarantee food availability and enhanced nutrition at all times.

The new varieties produce an insect-killing toxin, thus reducing the need for pesticides. Current biotechnology can increase crop yields and reduce production costs, even for small-scale farmers in developing countries, who make up a large part of the world’s poor and hungry population. (...) These patterns can be iden- tified by the use of: Molecular markers: DNA sequences that can be associated with a trait, such as cold tolerance or the ability to produce a certain toxin. Molecular markers can help researchers charac- terize genetic diversity more quickly and speed up breeding programmes without modifying the genetic stock of the organism. (...) When used to make pulp and paper, the modified wood requires less processing with harsh chemicals. Increased fish yield: Researchers have modified the gene that governs growth hormones in tilapia, a farmed fish, offering the prospect of increased yield and greater availability of fish protein in local diets.

Indoor air pollution is caused by toxic emissions from synthetic building materials and other pollutants and is exacerbated by a lack of circulation. Plants absorb these toxins, produce oxygen, and increase humidity. Make sure you have enough plants in big spaces.  (...) They are fast and easy to make with customizable fragrances and without harsh chemicals. They are also very inexpensive and clean streak and spot free, every single time!

According to Article IV of the Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention each State Party shall, in accordance with its constitutional processes, take any necessary measure to prohibit and prevent the development, production, stockpiling, acquisition, or retention of the agents, toxins, weapons, equipment and means of delivery specified in Article I of the Convention. (...) Some States Parties follow a policy under which only dangerous microorganisms and toxins that are contained on specially designed lists are controlled. (...) As already mentioned, authorization to handle dangerous microorganisms and toxins might be granted in the form of licences either to personnel or to facilities.

Botulinum toxins are one of the most lethal substances known. Botulinum toxins block nerve functions and can lead to respiratory and muscular paralysis. (...) C. botulinum will not grow in acidic conditions (pH less than 4.6), and therefore the toxin will not be formed in acidic foods (however, a low pH will not degrade any pre-formed toxin).
