    I'm not sure if it is one, but most growth hormones, or other things that make plants stuff happen is a carconogenic... Or sumthin like that... It causes cancer - think about it... It promots growth of cells, and most likely not anything too healthy for animal cells... I dunno Just me being me... Smack me if i'm wrong.

    Parasuco - yes, you are completely correct, it causes cancer, at extremely low doses. For colchicine, that is actually an understatement, it is more likely to be fatal. It is one of those chemicals that if you make a mistake with, you don't get a second chance, at all [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]
    Quite frankly, the stuff scares me. I would never experiment with it, or even live near anyone who does. Definitely something for a proffessional in a controlled lab only.

    Here is the ICPS warning:

    and a bit on Ivan Snyder's experiments here:
