How much cyanide is fatal?
How much cyanide is lethal depends greatly on how it is ingested, the dose, and how long ago it was ingested. Smelling cyanide is more deadly than eating cyanide. Cyanide is less of a concern when it comes into contact with the skin (unless the cyanide is mixed with DMSO). About half a gram of cyanide can kill an adult. Inhalation of high doses of cyanide can cause unconsciousness within seconds and death.
