In brief: No.

To make it even more interesting, there is also isothiocyanate, better known as the active ingredient in horseradish.

In brief: No

Thiocyanate a salt analogous in composition to a cyanate, but containing sulfur instead of oxygen and relatively nontoxic.
It is one of the compounds produced in the body as a detoxicating mechanism. Continued ingestion can cause goiter.
