Question
Dear Peter L

What happens if someone drinks industrial alcohol?
Is industrial alcohol a fatal poison?
Where can I find some information about fatal poisons?
Thank you for your early reply
Sincerely yours
M. Shamsara

Answer
Hi Mehrdad,

I don't really know much about what you mention as "industrial alcohol", nor where to find information on that specific thing.  

Regarding fatal poisons, contact the poison control center in your municipality.  Just about every community has them.

Regards,
Peter
