Low-dose lithium exposure modulates mortality. a depicts data from 18 different Japanese municipalities which are named and color coded on the right-hand side. The numbers of inhabitants are reflected by the respective diameter of circles. The X-axis shows logarithmic median tap water lithium concentration, the Y-axis depicts the standardized mortality ratio, defined as number of observed deaths divided by the number of expected deaths. b depicts are mean values (±SEM) of three separate experiments with approximately one hundred of C. elegans roundworms per experiment and condition. Black circles reflect control animals, open circles reflect animals that were continuously exposed to 10 μM lithium chloride
