Chemicals are everywhere and there are many of them that are dangerous to human life. However there are also those that can save your life in just a matter of second. This list contains those chemicals that are highly dangerous to us

Batrachotoxin 

This chemical is commonly utilized in poison darts from poison darts frog. Up to date, no antidote has been developed and it is highly potent steroidal alkanoidal that is amixture of cardiotoxic and neurotoxic . A diet that includes Melyrid beetles is needed for the frog to make this poison

Chlorine trifluoride

It is also called interhalogen compound that is colorless, highly corrosive and an extreme reactive chemical. It is highly explosive when it mixes with water; it is used as a component of rocket fuel and can only be stored in fluorine treated metal containers

Potassium Cyanide

To those who have ever seen potassium you already know how reactive this element is. Potassium cyanide is very poisonous and it kills in minutes. It has actually killed some few notable people like Ava Braun, Joseph Goebbels and Alan Turing. It has been used in some cases with people with bad intentions of committing suicide

Botox or Botulinum Toxin

The chemical is produced by the bacteria Clostridium botulinum and other related species. Despite being so toxic, it can also be found some cosmetics. It is considered dangerous due to its ability to paralyze muscles so it can treat wrinkles and prevent muscle spasm when used is small doses

It can be very toxic to human body is exposed to large amount of it. It was developed by plants as a defense mechanism against pests. But you will agree with me that even the small amounts are toxic to the body
