Well they're not undetectable if there's a way to detect them. So the title contradicts itself.

Arsenic will, however, knock the fizz out of soda. So if the soda is suddenly flat when you come back from the bathroom, DON'T DRINK IT.

Hank, you shouldn't name the title, "6 Undetectable Poisons" because you can.

AI and the use of Machine Learning can easily find and target the highest probability of what poisons are used. So for example if Oleander was used you simply create a data set of its symptoms and match that against the person being examined. We already use AI/ML to identify eye disease and its performed as good or better than doctors.
