** Referenced darkly in Creator/AlanMoore's ''LeagueOfExtraordinaryGentlemen''; in a text feature in Vol. 2, it is revealed that Alice emerged from the Looking Glass world with her entire body mirror-reversed. As a result, she was unable to eat normal food, and ultimately starved to death.

* In the massively crossover fanfic ''Bring Me the Head of Harry Potter'', it's revealed that Voldemort used a spell that turned people inside out. Examining a battlefield long after the fact, Willow Rosenberg feels the earth's pain from wrong-chirality organic molecule poisoning.
* One ''Series/StargateSG1'' fanfic mentions a right-handed world being used as a prison planet. Plenty of oxygen, but if you escape the prison camp there's absolutely nothing to eat. Unless you [[spoiler: dismember the guards]].

* In ''The Documents in the Case'' by Creator/DorothyLSayers, stereochemistry is proof that the death was a murder, not an accidental poisoning -- the poison is optically inactive (and hence produced by synthesis in a laboratory) rather than optically active (as it would have been if it came from a poisonous toadstool eaten by mistake).

** In the Dark Star Lounge on the Citadel, when Shepard asks for the strongest drink in the bar, the bartender serves up a green liquor and remarks: "[It's] guaranteed to knock you on your ass, unless you're dextro-DNA like me. If you are, it'll kill ya."

* The pungently orange-scented solvent popular under various trade names as a household cleaner is the D-enantiomer of the hydrocarbon limonene. The R-enantiomer is also a solvent that can be used as a cleaner, but smells of pine. Upon learning this, some people suddenly realize the true but often-overlooked fact that pine and citrus are very similar scents.

** Possibly this effort is doomed to failure, as a brain that doesn't receive an actual (right-handed) glucose rush in the wake of eating a sweet-tasting flavoring is likely to start registering that flavor as ''non''-sweet after several exposures. (As this argument applies to all low-calorie sweeteners, it is probably flawed.)
** Another probelm is that if the sugars can't be absorbed in the gut, there could be mild laxative effects from osmosis. This one seems actually likely, since "sugar alcohols" used as "non-caloric" sweeteners (such as sorbitol) really ''are'' laxatives in large doses.
