Default A clue about ethidium toxicity

Excellent info. So, assuming that these numbers apply to people (not
entirely unreasonable, if the vets think they apply to both rats and
cows!), it would seem 6 ug/day (possibly more, given the
EtBr/isometamidium data) would be a safe therapeutic dose for a
normal-sized person; my EtBr stock is at 10 mg/ml, which means i could
drink 6 ul a day and expect to have no ill effects. I imagine splashing it
on the skin leads to far less efficient absorbtion (although possibly a
more powerful local effect).
