    👨‍⚕️👩‍⚕️🚑Happy Medical Monday! 👨‍⚕️👩‍⚕️🚑
    Quick note: in my mitochondrial diagram, it looks like Acetyl Co-A initiates gluconeogenesis but it doesn't. When Acetyl Co-A is present in large amounts, Pyruvate Carboxylase acts on pyruvate to generate oxaloacetate. The diagram shown is a heavily abbreviated one, and I should have put "PC" on that arrow from acetyl co-a to oxaloacetate and another from pyruvate to oxaloacetate. i'll be more clear next time. if you're a student studying, you know/learn/understand a much more in-depth version and should go off the one in the books.

      I feel bad for his roommate tho. They probably regrets ever putting that pasta in the fridge, making those jokes, and letting him make pasta like that.

                  And even if food poisoning is usually not deadly. It’s still not worth it. It’s really not.

                    So the food poisoning was very unfortunate, but the overdosing on the stomach medication was a big, big mistake as well.

                                            This video shook me. I was also a college student and accidentally left out freshly made pasta overnight. I thought it smelled fine so I ate more of it and put it back in the fridge. Hours later I went from an upset stomach to feeling queasy and dizzy. I took a dose (not the whole bottle) of Pepto and went to bed early. A couple hours later I woke up with a high fever and queasiness. Long story short I could barely get out of bed and tried to go back to sleep but I kept vomiting each and every hour.

                                            It took me weeks to get better (along with feeling bloated) but considering how this story turned out I'm lucky I survived it.

Guy didn't want to go into the ICU/ER ... and that probably killed him among other things.. Like consuming an entire bottle of Pesto-Bismo. BTW (Who does this?) Poor bastard... but some good can come out of his death , like this video, and the knowledge gained by the investigation in his autopsy.
