Boric acid isn't actually a poison; it works through a diferent mechanism but that's biology and I'm a chemist who has talked too much already. It even occurs in some ear drops meant for humans. The type used by people with excessive exposure to water like swimmers or scuba divers.

As for myself I like either canister stoves or solid fuel (esbit, etc.) for the times that I use a stove.
