    A young man who drank a quart of soy sauce went into a coma and nearly died from an excess of salt in his body, according to a recent case report.
    The 19-year-old, who drank the soy sauce after being dared by friends, is the first person known to have deliberately overdosed on such a high amount of salt and survived with no lasting neurological problems, according to the doctors in Virginia who reported his case. The case report was published online June 4 in the Journal of Emergency Medicine.
    Too much salt in the blood, a condition called hypernatremia, is usually seen in people with psychiatric conditions who develop a strong appetite for the condiment, said Dr. David J. Carlberg, who treated the young man and works as an emergency medicine physician at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital in Washington, D.C.
    Hypernatremia is dangerous because it causes the brain to lose water. When there is too much saltin the bloodstream, water moves out of the body tissues and into the blood by the process of osmosis, to try to equalize the salt concentration between the two. As water the leaves the brain, the organ can shrink and bleed, Carlberg said.
    After the man drank the soy sauce, he began twitching and having seizures, and the friends took him to an emergency room. That hospital administered anti-seizure medication, and he was already in a coma when he was taken to the hospital where Carlberg was working, the University of Virginia Medical Center, nearly four hours after the event.
    "He didn't respond to any of the stimuli that we gave him," Carlberg said. "He had some clonus, which is just elevated reflexes. It's a sign that basically the nervous system wasn't working very well."

    Are people getting progressively dumber, or have there always been dummies like this but we just didn't hear about it as much before the interwebz?

    When he wakes up he'll be quite thirsty. And after an hour he'll be hungry again.

    Damn that's a fuck load of salt that kid ate. Can't say at that age though I'd have thought anything bad would happen from it either.

    Wonder how quickly he drank it, I can't imagine chugging that much without puking it up immediately after.

    I heard a story about this same kind of thing years ago, but the kid drank a bottle of vinegar. Did it for a dollar bet.

    What damage would vinegar do? It's not any more acidic than the stomach and it's pretty close to wine.
