safetycap: FTA:

"Halliburton is in the business to provide solutions to our customers," said production manager Nicholas Gardiner. "Those solutions have to include ways to reduce the safety or environmental concerns that the public might have." Huh. Offer to inject it into Gardiner's neck, if it's so "non-toxic."

Well, you can always make things less toxic, there's not really a bottom limit on toxicity.  I mean, pure water is toxic to a certain degree.

The fact that the chemicals in common use before weren't very dangerous doesn't mean it's not possible to make them less dangerous if people are feeling paranoid about it.  Look at how the standard for glass sneeze bars have been standardized out in favor of polymer due to some minor loss of silicon into the food, despite the fact that the fragments were too small to do anything to anyone and not metabolically active in the slightest.
