AMNA identifies foods containing substances that contain toxins that can do harm to the body, whether slowly in small amounts and over a long term, or immediately. Although not one-and-the-same, many foods identified as TOXINS are also INTOXICANTS, consumed because of the effects they have on a person's state of being. Much of the hadith prohibiting intoxicants is the same the ahadith prohibiting alcohol.
Islamic Prohibition against TOXINS
Islam forbids intentionally harming oneself. Foods which contain toxic substances which can do harm to the body's cells or nervous system, whether slowly in small amounts over a long term, or immediately, are then included under this prohibition.
