Disagreement on cyanide's mode of toxicity
Unless I am mistaken, cyanide poisoning operates by blocking cytochromes, NOT haemoglobin. There is an antidote for cyanide poisoning operates by making cyanide bind preferentially to haemoglobin instead of the cytochromes, which is fine because likely doses of cyanide are much too low to sequestrate sufficient amounts of haemoglobin to do any damage. It is carbon monoxide that poisons in the manner described in the article, as naturally-occuring doses of CO are much higher, sufficient to do damage in that way. Unfortunately I do not have the necessary expertise to write an article in much more detail than what I have stated above, so I have left the article as is for now. That said, if anyone wants to quote any part of the above in order to rewrite the article, feel free. Zadok13 (talk) 17:41, 5 May 2010 (UTC)
