台灣,一名女人突然無緣無故的七孔流血暴斃,一夜之間,就奔赴黃泉大家下回可要多多注意囉!經過初步驗屍 .斷定為因砒霜中毒而死亡。那砒霜從何而來?
Taiwan, a woman suddenly unprovoked bloody seven-hole died overnight, next time we went to their lives. Pay attention to what will happen a lot?! After a preliminary autopsy. Diagnosed as a result of arsenic poisoning death. The arsenic supposed to come from?

Police launched an in-depth and extensive investigation. A medical school professor was invited to help.

The professor carefully examine the remains from the stomach of the deceased. In less than half an hour, the mystery was revealed. He said: 'It was not suicide and also not murder. It was ignorance!'

教授說:「砒霜是在死者腹內產生的。」死者生前每天也會服食「維他命 C」,這完全沒有問題!問題出在她晚餐吃了大量的蝦,吃蝦本身也是沒有問題的,所以她的家人吃了都沒有事,但死者卻同時服用了「維他命 C」,問題就出在這裡!
All puzzled and wonder why ignorance could kill!
The professor said: 'The arsenic was produced in the stomach of the deceased.' The deceased took 'Vitamin C' every day. This by itself is not a problem. Problem was she ate a lot of shrimp for dinner. Eating shrimp by itself is not a problem. This was why nothing happened to other family members. The problem lies in the taking of 'Vitamin C' and shrimp at the same time.

美國芝加哥大學的研究人員,通過實驗發現,蝦等軟殼類食物含有大量濃度較高的 -五鉀砷化合物。
Research at the University of Chicago in the United States found through experiments that soft-shell shrimp food contains a lot of highly concentrated - five potassium arsenic compounds.

這種物質食入體內,本身對人體並無毒害作用!但是,在服用「維生素 C」之後,由於化學作用,使原來無毒的-五鉀砷 ( 即砷酸酐,亦稱五氧化砷,其化學式為As205),轉變為有毒的三鉀砷(即亞砷酸酐),又稱為三氧化二砷,其化學式為 (As203),這就是人們俗稱的砒霜 !
The foods taken are harmless to the human body. However, with 'vitamin C', there is chemical reaction. The original non-toxic - five potassium arsenic (As anhydride, also known as arsenic oxide, the chemical formula is As205) changed to a three potassium toxic arsenic (ADB arsenic anhydride), also known as arsenic trioxide whose chemical formula is (As203), which is commonly known as arsenic!

砒霜有原漿毒作用,能麻痺細血管,抑制巰基梅的活性,並使肝臟脂變肝小葉中心壞死,心、肝、腎、腸充血,上皮細胞壞死,毛細血管擴張。故中其毒而死者,常是七竅出血。所以;為慎重起見,在服用「維生素 C 」期間,應當忌食蝦類。
Arsenic poisoning causes paralysis to small blood vessels and inhibits the activity of the liver. Internal bleeding of the heart, liver, kidney and intestine happen. Thus, the deceased died of poisoning. Therefore, as a precautionary measure, while taking 'vitamin C', do not eat shrimp.
