Botox is a brand name for Bottolinum toxin, which is a toxin produced by a bacteria. This highly toxin is used mostly for painful muscle spasm. However, botox is well known as a medicine to improve your appearance such as for treating exsessive lines between the eyebrows, and forehead. Mostly, it is caused by ageing process. Jessica Simpson is claimed using this product to tigthten her forehead.
Botox also can be used as chemical walfare. It has been claimed to be have been used in the Operation Anthropoid to kill top Nazi Reinhard Heydrich and in "Operation Mongoose", where in 1961, the CIA saturated some cigars, of Fidel Castro's favorite brand, with botulinum toxin for a possible assassination attempt. The cigars were never used, but when tested years later were found still effective.
Another symptom that can be treated by Botox is excessive sweat. For Indonesians, you might still remember the jargon "BURKET". Botox also can be injected to armpit to treat this condition. And i hope, finally you can say... bye bye burket... even some studies showed that the effectiveness of this method to treat excessive sweat is just 20%.
