Squid Game has quickly become the most successful show in the history of Netflix, becoming the number 1 program in over 90 countries. I couldn’t resist myself, and after watching the first few episodes, I realized there was actually a lot to say about the medical aspects of this show. Hwang Dong-hyuk’s distopic Korean sci-fi thriller is brilliantly entertaining, but is it medically accurate? Today we talk about the danger of eating blood, diabetes, sleep-inducing gas, ankle sprains, nerves in your fingers, amputations, boxing and punching, punctured lungs, thermal cameras, neck cracking, transporting organs, surgery, organs you can live without, dimentia, alzheimers, brain tumors, fevers, hyrdation, urination, and red light green light 😉

I LOVE reading your comments and take your suggestions seriously. If there’s a subject you want me to discuss or something you’d like for me to react to, leave a comment down below. Many of my videos have been born out of suggestions directly from you, so don’t hold back!
