TextLethal injection is the injection of potassium. How much potassium does it take to kill? Bananas are said to be very high in potassium. How much potassium is in a banana? Lastly, can one eat so many bananas, or be on a diet consisting mostly of bananas over a long period of time, eventually suffer from potassium poisoning?
Text200 mg of potassium (K) can make you sick yet 2 avocados with 2,400 mg of K is fine. Even 10 bananas with 4,000 mg is fine. Yet FDA does not allow more than 99 mg of K in a supplement
Those days everything could be a risk!

Potassium absorbed through the intestines and dealt with naturally is NOT the same as having a super mega-dose injected straight into your veins.
