      Yes I’m pretty sure they are. Some can burn your skin, some can choke you or asphixiate you (replace the oxygen in your blood with something else). Mustard gas was developed because it’s cheap and effective in warefare. Some toxic gasses would disperse in the air too quickly for instance. Some are very expensive.

      Possibly. But I don’t really know.

      Toxic gases – I don’t work with any but yes; there are some incredibly toxic ones out there.

      Mustard gas is very debilitating, and produces awful burns on people but doesn’t always kill.

      I don’t what the most toxic one is though.
