Share This Article:
As morbid as the headline you just read is, it’s actually a pretty fascinating question. YouTube channel AsapSCIENCE has almost 6.8 million subscribers, a real knack for this kind of thing, and a history for looking into deadly amounts – which you’ll find out about later. Here they are to explain more. Any of that surprise you? Still trying to get your head around it all? Perhaps a recap will help. AsapSCIENCE’s team of Mitchell Moffit and Gregory Brown source a plethora of scientific papers and articles to find answers to your science questions. So based on their research, here are 12 things which could kill you – fun! 1. 129 teaspoons of pepper. 2. A few teaspoons of nutmeg. 3. 10.5 cups of sugar (assuming you’re 150lbs (68kg)). 4. 24 170ml tubes or 6 ounces of toothpaste. 5. 68 nanograms of botox. 6. Around 11,000 oranges or 809 vitamin C supplement pills. 7. 14G of acceleration. 8. An internal body temperature of 40C. 9. An internal body temperature of -21C. 10. 7,143 abdominal X-rays in a row. 11. Around 25 medium sized green potatoes. 12. About 480 bananas. Scary stuff hey – you’ll think the next time you’re about to eat 480 bananas in one go. But wait, there’s more – and part one of the Canadian YouTubers’ “this much will kill you” theme is well worth a watch. It’s all about moderation…
