How do body detoxify NEURON TOXICANTS?

Resolved Question:

Thanks for your answer.
this will be the last questions for metal related toxification.
pls. teach me what is wrong in my thought.

if new developed neuron toxicant (high lipid soluble) gets into cells or neurons, not doing directly prohibiting some function (such as blocking receptors or enzyme or attack RNA or etc --> absoultly could make directly bad syptom in human) but it is only get into and stay...and could not be detoxified for a long time, after time flow cells feel very tired of becuase of toxicant staying in cell and cell graudually lose their function and 3-4month later cell is going to die and people die.

pls. explain me why this is not rational thinking.Becuase I don't know the biology.
(for example, if toxicant have no function to block receptor or enzyme...they could not get into and only staying in cell is not possible...)
Thank you very much.

I appreciate your interest in this topic.
However see if it can get inside the cell, by competing with receptors or whatever, it will mostly end up killing the cells. ( mercury comepting with selenium, killing the neurons ).
If it can't do that it will be biotransformed either by liver, or keep causing systemic toxicity.
It will affect the organs directly.
Only staying in cell is not possible, because once it goes inside it will change the physiological functions of the cells. Whenever other leucocytes realise the cell is not normal, the cell will be killed immediately.
