Medical Fun Facts - Gary Lum
About This Show
I started Medical Fun Facts after a friend at work asked that whenever I visit her at her work station I share with her a medical fun fact. Given my knowledge-base is focussed mainly on medical microbiology, infectious diseases, some aspects of pathology and a little bit about health emergency management, this podcast will probably reflect these areas. It’s highly unlikely I will delve into psychiatry or endocrinology, not because they are not interesting, but mainly because I don’t have much to do with those areas of medicine. Now I should point out that I am a registered medical practitioner in Australia. I have general registration in medicine and specialist registration in microbiology. I want to make it very clear that I am not forming a doctor patient relationship with anyone through this podcast and I am not offering clinical advice in the treatment of any particular person. If you need medical advice you should consult a registered medical practitioner in your area. I also suggest you do not see practitioners of alternative or complementary or integrative medicine. See a fair dinkum doctor and always consider a second opinion. If you disagree with anything in these podcasts or if you would like to voice a different view please feel free to write a comment.

I’m trying something new tonight.
I thought I’d make video available on the blog page. Please let me know what you think in the comments. This also means I went off script for good portions so please listen or watch to catch everything. The video can be found at https://youtu.be/T6wdePzcdrE
Last week a friend who listens to Medical Fun Facts asked me if sous vide cooking chicken was safe.
I’ve been wanting to get a sous vide cooker for some time so this question really interested me. Some of you may know that I also have a food blog at http://YummyLummy.com
If you’re not familiar with sous vide, it’s basically cooking food that has been vacuum sealed. The food is cooked at relatively low temperature for an extended period. The whole process ensures food is not overcooked and remains succulent. Most foods apparently can be cooked using this method.
