On the other hand, salt is sodium and chlorine - two of the most toxic 
elements, but somehow we manage not to die when we eat it. The 
properties of individual elements in a compound do not necessarily 
transfer to the compound.

There are lots of things that are good for you in small doses and toxic 
at higher doses. I can think of all kinds of vitamins that will kill you 
at high dosage, but promote health at low dosages. The same can be said 
for aspirin. Nature abounds with examples.
