BRIEF: Are these substances toxic?


QUESTION:
Am I understanding correctly that Ricin is a toxic substance and those listed as a Bacterium (Botulinum, Shiga, Tetanus) are actually the results of being exposed to a toxic bacteria?

All are toxic substances. Ricin is produced by plants, the other three are produced by bacteria.
