It's The Dose That Kills

   "It's the DOSE that kills." This is a very important concept I teach to my college students. Water can kill you if you drink too much of it. Drinking contests are like playing Russian roulette...not a good idea! I found this informative video online, and the most disturbing part, perhaps, is that someone actually kept waking up a rat until it eventually died from sleep deprivation. Ugh.
