Cooperate

Although, I believe “The last 6 letters: to professionally dissect.” should actually be the last 7 letters.

– I am consumed or I have consumed?
– The last 6 or 7 letters: to professionally dissect?

“cooperate”
I’m almost certain this is the answer, but some of the clues don’t fit.

Take away my first 6 letters, and I’m consumed = ate
Minus my last 7 and I’m odorless and poisonous = CO
The last 6 letters: to professionally dissect. = perate? (last 7 letters are “operate”
My last 4 you can do to this puzzle = rate
My 8,9,7 is a restorative frequently found in a 4,2,8 = tea, pot
My first 4 is a cage = coop
My 6,3,4,5 is a strong line = rope
My 4,7,8,9 is foul, finely ground. = pate? (as in someone’s head?)
My whole is necessary for peace (9 letters). = [to] cooperate

COOPERATE!!

That was a hard one for me.Without the correction,I could’nt have done it.

once I knew ” consumed = ate “,it was downhill!

thanx.

I assumed RK thought that Pate is foul (awful) as it is made of liver
Fowl never occurred to me

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
c o o p e r a t e

ate
CO (C=carbon O=oxygen, CO=Carbon Monoxide)
operate (normally incision not dissection–then it would be on a cadaver; I don’t think morticians normally operate)
rate (as in “you rate”
tea pot
coop (coo-p as in a chicken coop; not Co-op as in short for cooperative)
rope
pate (fr. paw-tay as in english “paste”; not normally the whole fowl only the liver!)
cooperate
