i wonder why/how the body knows that sn could kill it, and induce vomiting. does anyone know how this mechanism of detecting lethal substances works?
N on its own is lethal without anti emetics but why is that?

I believe it’s on a cellular level of the cells themselves being starved of oxygen pretty quick and then it’s just a rapid chain reaction.

N doesn't need antiemetics because it works so quickly. It's not that the body doesn't know it's bad, it's just that there isn't time to react. Different processes are shut down and stuff.
