More evidence for my theory that road salt in drinking water causes heart problems in winter

I was reading about bradycardia again, and this web page mentioned that one of the possible causes is a high blood potassium level – such as what you might get if you were drinking a lot of tap water that had potassium road salt in it, or other non-sodium salts.

Bradycardia also occurs in some people who have certain medical illnesses not related to the heart, such as:

An abnormally low level of thyroid hormones (hypothyroidism)

An abnormally low body temperature (hypothermia)

A very high blood potassium level

Lyme disease

Typhoid fever

    I googled the lyrics to that because I’m usually too deaf to hear them. Very apt.

    There are those who think that life Has nothing left to chance With a host of holy horrors To direct our aimless dance

    A planet of playthings We dance on the strings Of powers we cannot perceive The stars aren’t aligned Or the gods are malign Blame is better to give than receive

    You can choose a ready guide In some celestial voice If you choose not to decide You still have made a choice

    You can choose from phantom fears And kindness that can kill I will choose a path that’s clear I will choose free will

    There are those who think that They’ve been dealt a losing hand The cards were stacked against them They weren’t born in Lotus-Land

    All preordained A prisoner in chains A victim of venomous fate Kicked in the face You can’t pray for a place In heaven’s unearthly estate

    Each of us A cell of awareness Imperfect and incomplete Genetic blends With uncertain ends On a fortune hunt That’s far too fleet

    Okay, that’s definitely weird: “1919 – Boston Molasses Disaster: A large molasses tank in Boston, bursts and a wave of molasses rushes through the streets, killing 21 people and injuring 150 others.”

    What is noteworthy to you about January 15th? What am I forgetting?
