This page contains pictures and diagrams which help to explain in a graphic nature the devastating effects that Myodil has on the spinal cord. Also the chemical composition of Myodil

The spinal cord is about the size of a mans' little finger, the image above is a greatly enlarged representation with needle to scale overlayed.  The outer layers of the spinal cord are called the Meninges and are microscopically thin, the needle is passed through these layers in to the space which contains the cauda equina nerves and this is where they injected Myodil.

Myodil Chemical Composition
Even in those early days it must have been a highly suspect chemical mix considering the ingredients it used.  It consisted of Benzene (now regarded as the number one carcinogenic in the world), Hydrochloric Acid, Sulphuric Acid, Potassium Permanganate (a substance that can kill if digested) and 30% Iodine (if used incorrectly it can lead to Parkinson's Disease).
