Tellurium is usually found stuck to various metals in the ground. It forms ores with gold, silver, copper, and lead. When refining these metals, some unfortunate people have come into contact with purified tellurium—and exposure means you reek of garlic for weeks.
It’s standard practice to dissolve drug candidates in dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) when they are used. If you ever taste garlic, you’re instructed to drop what you’re doing and get to a hospital. 😉
