Botulism is a rare but serious paralytic illness caused by a nerve toxin that is produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum and sometimes by strains ofClostridium butyricum and Clostridium baratii.

It’s an old-fashioned skill that has undergone a lot of research, resulting in modern updates. Added symptoms included drooping eyelids, slurred speech, difficulty swallowing, and extreme weakness.
