Pretty sure what the chart means is that, taken straight, it takes the equivalent caffeine in 28.3 liters of coffee to kill you. It doesn't make that clear *at all* though.

I'm with Clifyt. How does it work out that 6 liters of water will kill you, but it takes 28 liters of coffee - which is mostly water?

So....6 liters of water will kill you, but it take 28 liters of coffee to do the same thing?

Caffeine is a hell of a miracle drug.

Hasn't the LD 50 been abandoned?
