I never saw a stove in my day, and yet never ailed a thing, at least as long as I could really be called alive, except for nettle rash one night when I was in my fifteenth year.. It was caused by some fresh fish that the boys used to catch in the lakes thereabouts."

But if you take too much of it, if you overdose on it, then there can, as is the case with all medicines, be some rather unpleasant side effects."
