It seems there are new concerns that the ever popular Botox may do more than get rid of wrinkles. A study suggests that the botulinum toxin appears to move from its injection site to the brain. It was thought that the toxin only acted locally but now it appears it can be transported along axons to sites in the central nervous system. It is thought to have significant and long-lasting effects on neuron functions. So now they are trying to figure out how to prevent the spread or find a way to use it therapeutically. Get rid of it. There has to be some kind of backlash from injecting toxins in your body.
