You may have heard of deadly poisons like arsenic, cyanide and even the devilishly hard to detect polonium 210. But did you know even drinking water could kill you? We had Deborah Blum, Ph.D., author of the totally awesome book “The Poisoners Handbook,” explain how H2O can be deadly in the right dose.
Deb's book is definitely worth a read. Pick it up here: http://bit.ly/ACSPoisons
The book was also made into a great series on PBS:
Scientific Consultant: Deborah Blum, Ph.D.
Writer/Producer: Kirk Zamieroski
Renaissance Man: Paracelsus
