    Happy Medical Monday (which isn’t every Monday, and sometimes isn’t on Monday, but I try my best) 👨‍⚕️👩‍⚕️🚑
    PS Why do people in these videos have 2 letter initials for names? It’s a didactic tradition in presenting case reports. It lightly de-identifies the patient while upholding their humanity. They are, and will always be, more than just “the patient.” Thanks for watching :)

      Silicon valley and exposure to cinnabar, organic mercury leaching from the Almaden mercury mines into the ground water of the Santa Clara County valley. Especially along the Los Gatos Almaden corridor. What are the ramifications of organic mercury and the high incidents of mad hatters disease? I may be wrong but I do believe I read about this many years ago in the San Jose Mercury news that this is a super fund area. It seems that their is a very high incidents of mental illness. Bipolar? Please consider and reply!

      What the hell do we even need this chemical monstrosity for any way? Sometimes I think scientists possess an element of recklessness out of curiosity.

                          The video is about *organic* mercury, not the metallic mercury. Like he said in the video, it doesn't get easily absorbed contrary to organic mercury. You probably should go get yourself tested for mercury though.

                            I know you usually don't give out the name of the patient, but considering that she was a prominent figure in the research field and her story helped establish better safety protocols, would it be possible to make an exception? She deserves to be remembered.

                                            Perhaps this is just pay back for all the lab rats and other animals she did pointless experiments and vivisection on.

                                                  @Sample Text this is my concern about the advancement of technology... because at a certain point, civilisation-destroying weapons will be so easy to produce that the only thing that would stop us destroying ourselves is ensuring that nobody in our population has such a desire. That is going to be very hard to yet critical to ensure.
