I wonder if the variables accounted for different kinds of wood for the sawdust. As in, how much pine, walnut, cherry, oak, pecan, etc. did that young man put down in the name of science?

Well….My wife was told that grated cheese is packaged with saw dust to keep it from clumping. Called “cellulose” on the label. Bon appetite’

Rosewoods and Paduak are not tozic
From wood database

Allergies/Toxicity: Although severe reactions are quite uncommon, rosewood in the Dalbergia genus has been reported as a sensitizer. Usually most common reactions simply include eye, skin, and respiratory irritation. See the articles Wood Allergies and Toxicity and Wood Dust Safety for more information.

This is great! It reminds me of a related study by IKEA, “How much Rice Krispies can you put in furniture before people notice?”

Hmmm You just suggested a whole new market – different types of wood sawdust for different purposes:

Rice Crispys with walnut sawdust for parasite control;

Rice Crispys with poplar sawdust for regularity;

Rice Crispys with oak, walnut, maple (flavoring) and so on for sawdust making addicts;

. . . .

No, not in the way you are thinking:
