Tetrodotoxin

“In humans, TTX blocks the fast sodium current in muscle cells, preventing contraction. When the fast sodium current of the cells of the diaphragm are paralyzed, death occurs when breathing ceases. Symptoms of TTX poisoning usually develop within a half hour of ingestion, and death has occurred as quickly as within 17 minutes of ingestion. Other symptoms may include numbness of the lips and tongue, sweating, headache, weakness, ataxia, in-coordination, tremor, paralysis, cyanosis, aphonia, dysphagia, seizures,dyspnea, bronchorrhea, bronchospasm, coma, hypotension, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and abdominal pain.”

The things Vodoo Priest use to make the neurotoxin is puffer fish/poisoned frogs and sometimes human remains.These ingredients form tetrodotoxin.
