hist-brewing: poisonous brewing practices

I'm interested in doing some research on poisonous practices in cooking and 
brewing during the Medieval times and the Renaissance.  Some topics I want 
to follow are the boiling of wine in lead pots, cyanide from fruit pits, and 
the use of wormwood and other lethal herbs.

Does anyone have some good sources they could suggest?  Or perhaps some 
other topics I could look into?
