Things I’ve learned so far from reading too much crime

on February 29, 2012

there are certainly useful things i’ve learned so far from reading too much crime novels.

1. Myocardial infarction is not a cause of death – everyone dies of it. I read this in one of Patricia Cornwell’s Black Notice. Since i work in an insurance company here in Philippines, i do notice that most doctor’s here state in Death Certificates myocardial infarction as the cause of death. Well here goes Ms. Scarpetta saying that it isn’t. We all die of it. Heart stops beating. At some point the heart stops beating due to blood that stops flowing to the heart causing the heart cells to fail and then die… now i know.

2. Before, i didn’t know about what an autopsy is – that the term is the same with post mortem or necropsy ( to non human) is done to cadavers.. and after reading too much about autopsies i am refraining myself from eating chicken livers, gizzards and the likes. morbid.

old version autopsies

3. I’ve learned that maybe in my past life or maybe in my next next lifetime i will be a forensic investigator or a chief medical examiner ( in some country) as i believe we do not have one here in the Philippines. hahaha.

4.lastly, i’ve learned that crime books are way far from real life. far from CSI. That criminals still lurk everywhere in my city and i cannot do anything about it. hmmp.
