Intravenously, yeah. 30mg/kg of potassium chloride would lock-up your heart tout-suite.
But I sincerely
doubt VitoVino is injecting his daily potassium.
Orally, the LD50
of potassium is 2.5g/kg. A 180lb man/woman would have to consume 200 grams
, or over 40 times the RDA of potassium to get to that level. Yummy!
So Vito, relax and enjoy your salt substitute(s).
You're gonna die, we all die -- eventually, but it won't be from 'No Salt' potassium poisoning.
