Eating glue is probably okay for me. This doesn't mean I should eat glue. It doesn't mean glue is healthy. But it does mean that if I eat glue, I will probably be okay. I won't die.

Elmer's glue, for example, is described by the Elmer's Company as being "safe and non-toxic."[1]

A toxic substance is one that is "harmful or deadly."[2] A non-toxic substance, therefore, is one that is "not harmful or deadly."

Therefore, I can eat Elmer's glue and probably be okay, despite whether it provides no health benefits, and as long as I eat other healthy foods.
