    👨‍⚕️👩‍⚕️🚑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.

          Always reheat your leftovers to over 160! Food can be either rotten (will smell) or have bacteria growing in it.

          My rule of thumb is
          1) toss it If smells funny
          2) always reheat over 160 if it is in the fridge more than 2 days.
          Follow these rule and funny fear old leftover food

            It's scary to think how two bad decisions in less than a day can result in death. Especially when people are stressed, sleep deprived, and busy and not thinking deeply. And that drugs and mental illness can seriously impair judgment.

            I had a relative who went through a month of bad abdominal pain without medical attention because she felt she was busy and it wasn't that bad. Unfortunately every day of that was another bad decision. She died.

                              I’m surprised I haven’t died yet then. When I make food or get take out, I don’t keep leftovers. Mainly because I don’t like the taste of made food refrigerated and then reheated. In the case that I do have left overs I put them in air tight containers, leave them out, and eat them the next day. Typically it’s a small portion.

                              However, there’s been time I’ve had take out left out over a few days (mostly Asian foods like dumplings, korean stews, Thai noodles), and when I consume them I’m just fine. I’ve even left food out the whole day, going back and eating little by little 🤷🏻‍♀️. I guess I’ve just been lucky. I’m not changing my habits though, if this is how I go so be it. I’m smart enough to know if something smells bad or looks funny then to not eat it. This guys issue is he smelled it and was like “seems legit” when it wasn’t, and that’s HOW YOU DIE. So yh, keep doing your weekly meal prep, if you see or smell something off 👏 throw 👏 it 👏 in 👏 the 👏 bin 👏


                              The scariest moment for me in my life with food is when I picked up a can of sea snails from a local Lotte Mart. Can seemed fine, when I opened it no bad smells, and the texture and appearance of the sea snail seemed fine. Granted, I’ve eaten these all the time, so I would know if there was a problem.

                              After finishing I felt immediately sick...I’m not sure why I felt this way. I quickly checked the can to see if it had expired, nope, it didn’t expire for another year 👀. So why was I feeling ill all of a sudden? There were no answers, but I was sure it was just stomach upset and it would go away shortly.

                              Wrong. I felt my cheeks pucker and a surge in my chest. I ran to to loo and sure enough I puked out every one of those sea snails. To this day, I have no idea what caused it, but due to the nature of the event...I’ve completely turned away from sea snails...after many hours of research the only thing I could come up with is that sometimes seafood is bad...and sometimes there’s no way of knowing. For now, I won’t touch another can of sea snails.

                                                      This is one video where the victim dies--I should feel something but I don't. This is why I throw away old food --even if I do not look at the label. However, I was at the grocery store and I looked at a package of raw sausage links and upon inspection, I looked at the label and realized that the sausage links expired two weeks ago. I immediately threw them away upon that discovery like 'I do not want to die. I do not want food poisoning'. I've been lucky to not have food poisoning.
