Poison is in everything, and no thing is without poison. The dosage makes it either a poison or a remedy.' --Paracelsus

Poisoning became a common means of murder in the Victorian era. Cyanide was readily available in common household paints and wallpapers, and its effects caused convulsions, cardiac arrest, and death in a matter of seconds. Besides Cyanide, Arsenic was the chief poison of the Victorian era. It was a tasteless, odorless compound and its effects were often mistaken for food poisoning (making murder harder to trace).
