A teaspoon of medicine isn't

The latest astonishing finding in our never-ending guide to Dah Research:

When given a non-teaspoon sized spoon and asked to measure a teaspoon of medicine, most people get it wrong - a bit too much, or a bit too little.

This is startling news.

In future, I'll be careful to buy nothing other than teaspoons. It's those other spoons that cause all the problems.
the amount of liquid varied, depending on the size of the spoon: students underdosed when they used medium spoons, and overdosed with larger ones
Truly, that's what they found.

Awareness: to measure medicine, mind the spoon
