In brief: Botox

Anything taken internally that rusults in nerve or brain dysfunction is by definition a neurotoxin.
One example is botox. This temporarily blocks small nerve endings to facial muscles which gets rid of rinkles. Lead is another example. Lead based paints have been banned do to the potential for children to have brain damage from inadvertant oral intake.
