Pyruvic Acid

Post by kerry342 » Sun Feb 19, 2006 12:21 am

I have been told by one biology prof that the pyruvic acid created in Cellular respiration is toxic and another prof said that it is not... Can anyone help me with this question?
Thanks
Kerry

I don't think so, although I suppose in large enough amounts anything is toxic...
