6) In detective novels, “the odor of bitter almonds” is the tell-tale clue to murder by cyanide poisoning. Cyanide works by attacking the enzyme that transfers electrons from the respiratory electron transport chain to O2. Why is it not possible for the victim to survive by using anaerobic respiration? Why is cyanide poisoning almost immediately fatal?
