Carlos Pablo MIGUES-LABANCA, BSc.  See profile asked this question:

Language pair:

English > Spanish


Sciences / Non-fiction books

Level of diffculty:

Difficult / demanding

Word or term in question:

all noxious poisons


Article on the many uses of amethysts to neutralize "all noxious poisons".

The phrase sounds too odd translated into Spanish. Isn't it a bit redundant in English?

Which poison is NOT noxious, if any ?? Thank you very much in advance for your help.



The answer of Víctor Zamorano  See profile was rated best

producto/sustancia nociva

My comment:

Yes, is redundant also in Spanish, although you can find some examples on the web.
You also can simply say "venenos".
