I dont know whether to laugh or cry.

The article is not available anymore, but I assume there is something in it about the bible stating that if you truly believe the no poison can hurt you-

Mark 16:18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
