There are a whole lot of different things that can cause lemonade poison. There are several different types of poisoning, but it’s always best to be aware of what can potentially happen with your children.
Poisoning is generally caused by ingesting, inhaling, or touching something that causes you to choke or pass out, like a drug or an object. The following are some of the many ways lemonade can kill you:
- Drinking it straight, without diluting it with water, can cause asphyxiation (where the person becomes unconscious due to lack of oxygen)
- Drinking it with a lot of sugar can cause a severe reaction called “lemonade flush” when large amounts of the acid are swallowed. It’s important to note that this is more likely to happen in children who have not eaten for a long time, rather than adults.
- Drinking it with a lot of lemonade can also cause a severe reaction called “lemonade paralysis”, which is essentially the same thing as a lemonade flush, but more severe. This is typically seen in toddlers and children.
- Drinking it with any of the active ingredients in the lemonade, like citric acid, can cause a severe reaction called “lemonade burn” or “lemonade burnout”, which is essentially the same thing as a lemonade flush, but more severe.
It’s also important to be aware that lemonade and other fruit juices are not the only way to get lemonade poisoning.
Other ways to get lemonade poisoning
The following are some other ways to get lemonade poisoning:
- Drinking it through a straw is particularly dangerous, especially in children.
- Refilling a glass of lemonade with water, or adding a bunch of sugar to it, can also cause a severe reaction.
- Drinking it without diluting it with water or with a lot of sugar can cause a severe reaction called “lemonade flush”.
- Drinking it straight and with a lot of sugar can also cause a severe reaction called “lemonade paralysis” or “lemonade burnout”.
This is why it’s important to keep your kids from drinking lemonade, and to make sure that your kids are drinking water and not lemonade before they eat.
