Use of paracetamol for suicide and non-fatal poisoning in the UK and France: are restrictions on availability justified?
Trends towards greater availability of paracetamol are paralleled by increases in its use for both non-fatal overdose and suicide, which suggests that restrictions in the quantity of par acetamol available as a single purchase in the UK may reduce suicide and liver failure related to paracetmol.
Dysgeusia following consumption of pine nuts: More than 3000 cases in France
The delayed onset and persistence of dysgeusia suggest that the toxin may act via an unknown toxic mechanism on the receptor, and the aetiological agent could be an unidentified toxin present in some varieties of non-edible pine nuts.
Consequences of occupational asthma on employment and financial status: a follow-up study.

A different mechanism for methyl bromide neurotoxicity is suggested which could be related to the transformation of methylglutathione into toxic metabolites such as methanethiol and formaldehyde and N-acetylcysteine treatment could have a toxifying rather than a detoxifying effect.
Acute selenium poisoning.
Serial measurements of plasma selenium concentrations were performed and the first plasma level was obtained 3 h after ingestion and was the highest (931 micrograms/L); plasma concentrations subsequently decreased with a half-life of 17.5 h.
Healthy worker effect and changes in respiratory symptoms and lung function in hairdressing apprentices
Although a healthy worker effect can be suspected, results showed a significant deterioration of baseline values of lung function tests in the hairdressing apprentice group, however, no clear link was shown between change in lung function Tests and specific parameters of occupational activities.

The 11 survivals are only linked to the circumstances of the poisonings (route of administration, ingested amount, delay between ingestion and the last meal, etc.), and the different treatments did not modify the outcome.
