Jaundice is the yellowing of the skin and eyes caused by too much bilirubin (a yellow pigment produced during normal breakdown of red blood cells) in the blood,” Bunso said matter-of-factly. He never forgot what he learned in Mr. LJ’s Science class. The subject matter — common diseases of the liver — must have been too interesting for him to remember.
