Blessed caffeine - what's the lethal dosage on this stuff anyway...


"The LD_50 of caffeine (that is the lethal dosage reported to kill 50% of the population) is estimated at 10 grams for oral administration. As it is usually the case, lethal dosage varies from individual to individual according to weight. Ingestion of 150mg/kg of caffeine seems to be the LD_50 for all people. In cups of coffee the LD_50 varies from 50 to 200 cups of coffee."

I had that link for some time but lost it due to the inevitable hard drive format. But my memory served me correctly. I can't possibly harm myself by drinking coffee. Harm myself to death that is.
