* Disease
* Radiation
Preferable cases:
* Toxin effects NOT limited to simple health drain at steady intervals (there may even be none).
* Varying degrees of poisoning, especially each different poison has its own "stack" instead of a generic one.
* Gradual recovery
* No full recovery from extended poison damage

Should NOT be used in cases of simple status effects where the toxins wear off automatically after the effect duration runs out.
