Chemists are such odd people. These are taken from MSDS
safety hazard sheets.

Water:
Fire Extinguishing Media:
Use extinguishing media appropriate for surrounding fire.
(wow, those water fires are scary!)
For Water: LD50 Oral Rat: 90 ml/Kg. Investigated as a
mutagen.
(*If I ingest 90mL for every Kg of body mass, I have a 50%
chance of dying. Considering I will have drowned by then,
this seems reasonable.)

Sugar:
Ingestion:
Extremely large oral dosages may produce gastrointestinal
disturbances.
(also known as "love handles")
First Aid Measures - Ingestion:
If large amounts were swallowed, give water to drink and
get medical advice.
(also known as "Slushie overdose")
Oral rat LD50: 29700 mg/kg; investigated as a mutagen,
reproductive effector.
(how could ANYONE ingest that much sugar? Oh wait. Adam
and his Mt. Dew.)


Chemists, keeping the population from the perils of
dangerous chemicals such as sugar. and water.
