WEBSITES TEACH MURDER WITH RICIN AND BOTOX SHOCKER: Poison recipe joker Maxwell Hutchkinson continues to delight and amuse world

"Fanatical British Muslims are using the internet to plot a fresh wave of terror to mark the sixth anniversary of 9/11, The People can reveal," revealed the Brit celebrity tabloid, The People.

Brit lad Ziggy wows Chanelle on UK Big Brother, perhaps not with recipes of chemical weaponry downloaded from Internet.

"We have infiltrated a string of vile websites that spell out in chilling detail how to bring carnage to the UK," informs The People.

"Deadly ricin poison and DIY chemical agents" form part of the curiculumn of al Qaeda distance-learning courses on the Internet.

"[These] include manuals with titles like The Mujahideen Explosives Handbook and The Mujahideen Poisons Handbook."

Maxwell Hutchkinson's "The Poisoner's Handbook" takes center stage although the tabloid does not realize it.

"A horrific 23-page manual spells out a series of recipes for killer poisons," reports the tabloid, referring to a jihadi document which is one of multiple translations of the substance of Hutchkinson, published by Loompanics in the USA in 1988.

"It details toxins like arsenic and cyanide but also looks at poisons that can be made from everyday items such as tobacco, potatoes, cornflour and mushrooms," referencing Hutchkinson's trivial fascination, and subsequently -- jihadi interest, with nicotine (tobacco), solanene (chips) and botox made from cornflour, dust and meat thrown together in a can.

"Deadly ricin is made from castor beans - and is an al-Qaeda favourite."

This refers to the infamous common recipe for ricin, a process which simply grinds castor seeds and degreases the resulting mash, denaturing a significant portion of the ricin by the action of it.

Attractive jewelry tin of castor seeds -- pretty enough to help rationalize the invasion of Iraq.

In related news, the Dallas Morning News informs a vaccine can now protect mice against inhaled ricin.

"Previous research, led by Ellen Vitetta at UT Southwestern Medical Center, showed that the vaccine prevents death [in mice] via ricin injection," reported the newspaper. "But bioterrorists would probably spray ricin in the air or on food. So scientists wanted to be sure the vaccine would protect mice exposed by those routes."

"In the new study, appearing in a recent issue of the journal Vaccine , Dr. Vitetta and colleagues showed that the vaccine protected mice against highly lethal doses of ricin delivered to the lungs or gut, and with little damage to the lungs."

"If I had put in for a federal grant for ricin vaccine pre-9-11, it would have come back in a garbage pail," Vitetta said in a recent article on biodefense for the Ft. Worth Star-Telegram.

"The drumbeat for more biodefense spending as part of the war on terror resulted in passage of Project BioShield in 2004, which appropriated $6 billion for research [on a ricin vaccine] over 10 years," reported the newspaper. An additional 15 million has been awarded to DOR Biopharma, a small company developing Vitetta's vaccine.

"Ironically, if ramping up fear among Americans about the threat of biological warfare was intended, in part, to drum up public support for biodefense spending -- as some conspiracy buffs theorize -- then the downside is that accidents may result in an overreaction by the public and in the media," continued the newspaper oddly, rushing to the defense of the industry after accidents at Texas A&M's biodefense research facility were brought to light by Edward Hammond of the Sunshine Project.

The resulting scandal and recrimination brought down the vice president of research at the laboratory.

"Ultimately we don't need 400 institutions across the U.S. working on biological-weapons agents," Hammond said to the newspaper. "We've gone way overboard. I request records from universities, and there are wildly divergent interpretations of what constitutes security."

Staying in Texas, we read an interesting question on the gardening page of the Houston Chronicle.

"What can you tell me about the old-fashioned castor-bean plant?" asks a reader. "I believe my parents had them for shade for the chickens."

The Chronicle's gardening columnist replies: Castor bean (Ricinus communis) is a fast-growing but tender tropical that becomes a rounded shrub with purplish-red stems and large-lobed, burgundy foliage. The small, whitish flowers are followed by showy red, prickly seed capsules.

"The seeds are marbled brown-gray-white.

"An old Southern favorite, it's handsome in the landscape. Oil from the seeds is used in medicine and other substances. The seeds and other plant parts also contain ricin, which is highly toxic to people and animals, including chickens. The seeds are especially dangerous; if ingested, they may be fatal ... Therefore, avoid planting castor beans near play areas."
