    What you don't know CAN hurt you- See if you know how this happened?

    Here's a true-story medical mystery sent to me by a friend. See if you can figure out what happened, & do post your guesses below. I'll wait a while to post the rest of the story.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    A man was home from work taking care of his sick child while his wife and the other children were at school. Suddenly the dog keeled over and died, and their other dog was having

    seizures and looked terrible. The man called his wife and she ran home and scooped up the dogs and took them to the vet. Then the kids started coming home from school and there

    was also a friend of one kid who came over. They all started getting sick and vomiting and having trouble breathing. At this point the man called 911 and got all the kids outside and

    they all were taken to the hospital. The kids needed oxygen and their kidneys were showing some distress. They all eventually recovered and were discharged in 2-3 days, but had to

    go to a hotel. In the meantime the CDC was called in to check out the house once carbon monoxide was ruled out, and to verify that they were not a drug family. The mom never

    showed any symptoms, but was closely watched when she visited the others in the hospital, because it could not yet be ruled out that she had somehow poisoned her family.


    They finally figured out what happened...do you know? Hint: It's animal-related.

    Was it a nitrous gas like substance emitting from poop or urine just laying around? Thatís my only guess.

    Don't feel bad at all, this is a tough one & I didn't figure it out either. But I promise it's something more people should know about, which is why I decided to share it here & for a bit of fun.

    And thatís the sad part. It is going to be something simple and it is going to bother me until the riddle is solved.

    It's something I've never heard of before, & fyi, I've always enjoyed medical-mystery shows. But it IS something that could potentially affect even some members here.

    This story rings a bell. I'm pretty sure I've heard it somewhere else before...

    Was it something to do with coral? I've heard stories of corals getting stressed and releasing some noxious compounds that caused health issues when aerosolized. Including some that were closely related to ones I used to keep, yikes!
