6. Water

Over-hydrating can do a serious number on your body. When you drink too much water without also replacing electrolytes like sodium and potassium, the fluid in your cells and in your blood can become too diluted.

This means that the cells won’t function properly, because they can’t send electrical signals. Untreated, water intoxication can be fatal.


7. Nutmeg

While the medical literature only contains two examples of fatal nutmeg overdose, the effects of eating too much can certainly be unpleasant – especially if you’re not expecting them!

Taken in large amounts, nutmeg can actually cause hallucinations, and, understandably, fear and anxiety. Stick to regular use as a seasoning, though, and you should be fine.
