Toxicology & Poisons

What is a poison?

Everything is poison, even the air you breath

Everything is poison in the right dosages. Consuming, drinking, or even breathing too much of something can become toxic for your body. Too much junk food, too much alcohol, even too much Oxygen.

Wait...even water?

Excessive amounts of water can give you what is called water intoxication. This is the over hydration of the body, causing fatal effects such as seizures, and hyponatremia. Too much oxygen saturation in the blood, also called oxygen toxicity, can cause illness, stroke, and even cardiac arrest.
