    Abstract

    Magnesium deficiency is a cause of sudden death in animals [1–5]. Normal-appearing mice experience violent death [3], while cows may die quickly and quietly [4]. The lower the age and weight of the animal when placed on the magnesium-deficient diet, the earlier and more violent the death [2]. Early death may follow a period of rapid growth, particularly if the diet supplies large amounts of protein, calcium, and phosphorus [5].
