Well, maybe because all you need is something that will obsorb the poison (bread) and then make you puke it back up (really, really, really burnt bread) Does anyone know how long you have to burn said bread before the patient is helpless and the bread won't do anything?

Check with your local Poison Control Center, find out the straight story, and then let us all know.

I'll pass it on to the American Red Cross if they are suggesting something incorrect.

Thanks.

I don't have all that strong a stomach, but I can not imagine burnt bread, even really really burnt, making me toss my cookies. Absorb maybe, but not vomit...

from the poison control center's website

Quote:
Ask your poison center what to keep on hand for a possible poisoning. They might recommend ipecac syrup and/or activated charcoal. You can buy these medicines without a prescription. Use them ONLY if the poison center tells you to.

also looks like the burnt toast theory is out also from the above site!

Quote:
It seemed to make sense. If someone swallowed poison and then threw up, they shouldn’t get sick. This treatment approach was used for decades.

At first, people who swallowed poison were given many ineffective remedies:

* raw egg white;
* mustard;
* the "universal antidote" of burnt toast, tannic acid and milk of magnesia;
* salt water;
* tickling the back of the throat.

Sometimes, these remedies did cause vomiting. But they often caused problems of their own. For example, too much salt caused sodium poisoning, seizures and even death. Gagging someone often caused throat bleeding and swelling. Also, these home remedies were never reliable enough to be used to treat poisoning.
