Is it possible for a poison taken orally to have an effect on only one small area of the body? for example a foot or hand or something? I mean I know poisons don't tend to affect the whole body equally but could someone engineer one to specifically target a certain area of their choosing? Like a foot poison.

Theoretically I guess so. Or at least a solution with a specific disease or condition in it. Probably more difficult in practice than in theory though.
You're not an evil mastermind right? Please don't go poison feet.

I was thinking more like pills to attack healthy nerves or something but targeted. I don't suppose you know of a disease that could be "theoretically" given to someone to attack like a foot or hand or something?

Tried Google but nerve damage like I am theoretically thinking is more overuse than poison if targeted.

I wonder if you could take targeted immune cells from people with a relevant AI condition and use those. Kinda like how vaccinations work, but evil. Imagine weaponised arthritis. That would be crazy.
We'll have mini robots we can programme to do that soon enough though I'm sure.

That's terrifying, but basically what I asked. Thanks.
