super corrosive saliva, I like that thought.

Actually, our saliva IS super corrosive. It is comprised primarily of water (h2o) which is one of the most common and potent solvents known to man, and then of course there is actually a few natural acids from our saliva glands that helps break our food down as it is on the way to our stomachs. Oh, and don't forget the myriad of bacteria and other potentially lethal organisms that naturally inhabit our mouths, that we have evolved to symbiotically exist with.

Of course, all of that isn't enough, because then we breath in Oxygen (o2) which is ALSO highly corrosive, our bodies can and have adapted to be able to eat just about anything else that is or was at some point living, and even many things that never were alive. We also adapt to poisons by literally 'getting over it'. We can partition pain away. Our body has glands in it that will kill us just because.

The list goes on, but I think I'm going a bit too far here. xD
