Botox Question

One question not mentioned during this broadcast was "If botox is one of the most poisoness toxins known to man, why is there minimal danger of injecting it into persons for theraputic (spasm control) or even cosmetic (wrinkle reduction) treatments?"

Is there not a risk of it entering the bloodstream and moving throughout the body?

Certainly, this is not a terrorism related concern, but for the general public, it may be worth asking.
