Corrected entry: The CSI team determine a woman died after accidentally ingesting ricin (which she tried to use to kill someone else). She died within minutes of sticking her ricin covered pen into her mouth. According to the CDC, death by ingestion of ricin will occur within 36-72 hours (depending on potency, amount, etc.), not a matter of minutes. And, death could not have been from inhalation during her manufacturing of the ricin. They make it a point to show her burnt-looking tongue as the place where ricin was introduced to the body.Rlvlk
Corrected entry: When Grissom is showing the pickle experiment, Warrick says, that the body didn't make any resistance, because of the high ironlevel in the blood, but that can't be, because anything makes some resistance to electric power, but iron just doesn't make that much. So therefore, he should have said, that the body didn't make ENOUGH resistance to make enough heat to make burn marks.
