Crazy Scientist Drinks Cyanide On Camera
First off, DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME!
Now, chemistry expert CodyDon Reeder is no stranger to working with hazardous substances. He is, however, no stranger to taking care as well.
But even with that in mind, watching him pour a bit of actual sodium CYANIDE solution into his mouth is a bit stressful - for the lack of a better word. Ofcourse the dosage is low, and yes he's fine, but it's still nail biting to watch it!
Apart from pulling off a stunt, he's also trying to tell that chemicals in themselves aren't all that poisonous - it's the dosage the matters. Too much water can kill you, and caffeine in its powder form is pretty easy to overdose on. You get the point, right?
This goes to show that even with something as deadly as sodium cyanide, there's a minumum amount before things turn ugly.
Still, please don't try this at home. Or anywhere else for that matter. It pays to be careful.
