Toxicology! Because What You Don't Know Can Kill
You is about everyday people and their encounters with the clinical
laboratory. This collection of stories is a behind-the-scenes look at the
intricate workings of a toxicology laboratory. Many of these cases ended with
legal consequences. All stories are based on Dr. Alan Wu?s involvement with real
cases as a toxicologist. Because of patient privacy laws, the names and places
have been changed.
We all wish we had more power?the power to turn back time,
to re-write history, and make better decisions, but most importantly, the power
to save a life. However, the dream of being someone?s hero or even saving
yourself from certain death or misfortune is a plight that no average person can
seemingly muster. Without super strength or extrasensory perceptions, it may
appear that we are on our own to battle uncertain destiny. But what if you were
told there?s a way to change your fate, to hold more cards, and take not only
your own life, but the lives of those you love into your hands?? No, we cannot
go back in time, but we can set forth ripples of change into the future that can
alter our coexistence forever. Toxicology and clinical laboratory testing may be
one of those portals.
