Kilogram?[edit]

To avoid "taking sides" on the political issue of metric vs. english vs. whatever -

for the line in the text that says "In general, children experience more severe symptoms because they receive a larger amount of venom per kilogram of body mass." I would rather see it say ". . . per unit of body mass" since the measuring unit is not relevant to the statement and any unit will do.

I didn't change it myself because I didn't know if there was really some reason to say "kilogram" or if the writer was just being careless. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Megalonzerg (talkcontribs) 20:55, 18 May 2012 (UTC)

I agree with you, and that seems to be both and innocuous and neutral change. I've made the edit. TJRC (talk) 23:50, 18 May 2012 (UTC)
