Death Upside Down

Apparently when you have a heart attack your cells don't die of oxygen starvation in 5 minutes, they die hours later, but if you get restarted after 5 minutes the infusion of oxygen causes your cells to commit suicide because they think they've become abnormal. Major repercussions in resuscitation theory. Wiggy. Link to Newsweek article.

This sort of thing makes me reaffirm my commitment to unbiased investigation and getting kids, myself, and everyone else, to ask more questions. Woot! Uncertainty!
