The Peaceful Pill eHandbook Sodium Azide & Death
Prior to 2017, deaths from azide exposure were relatively rare. Generally speaking, they occurred laboratory accidents or when exposure took place when airbag rupture occurred. Since 2017, there has been a rapid increase in the use of this substance for an elective death.
Dutch psychiatrist and activist, Boudewijn Chabot (author of Uitweg) has generously provided a set of data compiled by the Dutch poisons centre (DPIC) that detail some 19 deaths in this period. Exit is grateful for his contribution.
