The guys over at Asap Science illustrate a 3 and a half minute video of how us humans (and animals) could die from excessive dosage of 'anything'.

Ok we all know that too much of anything can kill you — even water. But cherry pits if chewed can murk you? That ruined my love of cherries and twisting the stem with my tongue (yes, I can do this).

According to the Asap Science guys, cherry pits contain amygdalin and the enzymes in our gut can turn amygdalin into cyanide. And cyanide can be deadly if consumed. FML…

Another fun factoid: If you're over 5 feet tall, researchers have hypothesized that for every 1 inch above 5 feet you lose 1.3 years of life expectancy. Told you, you shouldn't watch this video if you're a hypochondriac!
