A Thai man made a sickening discovery as he used the toilet this week — a 32-foot-long tapeworm “sticking out of his bottom,” according to a new report.
Kritsada Ratprachoom, 44, of Udon Thani in northeastern Thailand, felt something slimy in his behind after he finished doing his business on Monday, The Mirror reported.
Ratprachoom snapped a few photos — even picking up the stomach-churning ribbon-like worm and holding it in his hand — before flushing it down.
Peter Frates, the man with ALS who inspired and championed a social media challenge to raise awareness of the neurodegenerative disease, has died at the age of 34.
Frates’ family confirmed the news of his death Monday in a statement that reflected on his courage and resiliency in the face of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS.
Stephanie Wigglesworth, 36, was diagnosed with Squamous Cell Carcinoma at the age of 30.
She underwent a procedure where surgeons cut through her neck, sliced her tongue straight down the middle and removed half of if.
They then constructed a new tongue using skin, muscle and a long vein from the woman’s left arm.
The mum from Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, said: “The surgery was long and I was exhausted when I finally woke up.
(CNN) — When the video starts, 4-month-old Georgina silently stares at the camera. Then her mother says, “OK, so we’ve just turned your hearing on. Can you say hello to everybody?”
Georgina’s response is immediate — and heart-melting. She enthusiastically squeals a long, high-pitched “hi” of her own. When she turns her head, you can see the hearing aids in her tiny ears.
Paul Addison, Georgina’s dad, posted the video on Twitter because he wanted the world to know the joy his family experiences “When our daughter’s new hearing aids are turned on in the morning.”
This man paid a painful price for letting his health go limp.
Doctors at Flinders Medical Centre near Adelaide in South Australia were left with no choice but to amputate the tip of a patient’s genitals, reducing his member to a “penile stump,” according to the case report published in BMJ Journals.
But during his examination, medics noticed that the end of his penis had turned white with black spots.
Surgeons quickly realised that it was gangrenous and the dead flesh needed to be sliced off urgently to prevent it from spreading.
Why do some psychopaths get ahead in life? It may be because of a brain advantage that allows them to control their impulses.
Psychopaths are characterized by their tendency to be mean, disinhibited, and bold. They are disproportionately the perpetrators of violent crimes and subsequently make up a large proportion of the prison population. Indeed, about 93 percent of psychopaths are in jail, prison, on parole, or on probation.
