The Second Annual Toxies Red Carpet Awards for Bad Actor Chemicals took place June 16 at the famed Egyptian Theater in Hollywood and were even more spectacular than at the first Toxies last year. Sure, there was a lot riding on the competition as noted in the post Toxies Take Tinseltown and our fave chemical, the toxic rocket fuel oxidizer Perchlorate came through winning Worst Special Effects. Check out Perchlorate’s interview on YouTube.

I started drinking perchlorate like millions of other Southern Californians years ago long before I met the sleek silver salt. Perchlorate affects the thyroid, which is especially dangerous to young children and pregnant women. Perchlorate’s affect on the body is borne out in this awards show in the Heart of Hollywood.
