Great resource on potassium

kind of an “everything you wanted to know about potassium but were afraid to ask.”

I especially love the two Nobel prizes in the top corner. Pauling is one of only four people to win two. In an alternate universe Linus got a couple of breaks to beat Watson and Crick to the structure of DNA. In that universe he has three Nobels and walks around like Michael Phelps.

  2. Interestingly, Linus Pauling also had very severe nephrotic syndrome. He followed an intense low-protein diet and credited this with his eventual relapse. I don't think he ever had a biopsy so I'm not sure what the etiology was (maybe membranous nephropathy?) The story is well-delineated in the book "Dropsy, Dialysis, Transplant" by nephrologist and medical historian Steven Peitzman.
