Can you get sick from eating a lot of ice cream?
You can get sick from eating or drinking a lot of anything, not just ice cream. Even too much water will make you very sick. Note: "Too much water" means like twenty cups within a couple of hours, which can be fatal as it dangerously dilutes the body's electrolytes. The LD50 for water is 90g/Kg, it takes much less than that to make you sick (perhaps only 7 to 9 cups consumed in the same couple of hours, maybe even less). The LD50 for ice cream has never been determined, but is probably similar to water as it too would act by diluting the body's electrolytes being ice cream is mostly water. The fact that both will make you sick when consumed in excess has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that both (or anything for that matter) will be fatal when consumed in grossly extreme excess! As a rough estimate, the same quantity of either water or ice cream will probably make you sick; and the same but much much larger quantity of either water or ice cream will probably kill you.
