Storyboard Text

  • Was this in Biological Inorganic Chemistry class?
  • Hello darling. How was school today?
  • Hi Mom. Today we learned about Magnesium.
  • Yes Mom! With my favourite lecturer, Dr. Williams. Come sit and I'll tell you all about it.
  • So Mom, we talked about Magnesium toxicity in our bodies.
  • We have Magnesium in our bodies? Oh dear!!!
  • Calm down Mom. Our body needs Magnesium, for proper muscle and nerve function, for example.
  • Too much Magnesium in the blood can also affect the cardiac muscle and cause irregular heartbeat and hypotension.
  • Okay. So, if our bodies need Magnesium, why is it also toxic to us? I'm confused.
  • Magnesium becomes toxic to our bodies above certain levels.
  • Okay. And then what happens my child?
  • Too much Magnesium in the blood can cause muscle weakness, difficulty breathing, and even mental confusion.
  • Oh dear!
  • Okay Mom!
  • Whew! I've had enough learning for one day. Let's go have dinner darling!
