Glyphosate or Table Salt both kill you


There is a reasonable correlation between the amount ingested and the likelihood of serious systemic sequelae or death. Advancing age is also associated with a less favorable prognosis. Ingestion of >85 mL of the concentrated formulation is likely to cause significant toxicity in adults. 

Table salt Sodium chloride NaCl, Lethal Dose  12357 mg/kg 

If you do the metric conversion Salt is lethal at 12 ml and Glyphosate at 85 ml.

I am making a clarification to previous statement. My metric conversion was a bit off although does not change the story. Salt is only 3 times as toxic as glyphosate not 5 times.

Dr. Cami Ryan formerly of the University of Saskatchewan has this all laid out in much greater detail and easy to understand. Link here

Just saying please pass the salt for my prime rib.
