Overview

The next book in the strange and fascinating series that began with the national bestseller Why You Shouldn't Eat Your Boogers&Other Useless or Gross Information About Your Body.

The national bestseller Why You Shouldn't Eat Your Boogers&Other Useless or Gross Information About Your Body uncovered everything one might want to know (and a few things one might not) about the human body. The follow-up bestseller Why Fish Fart&Other Useless or Gross Information About the World contained an artful selection of odd and/or unsavory facts about the world. Why Dogs Eat Poop scoured the animal kingdom for gross and or off-color facts about animals. In this delightfully disgusting new book in the series, David Haviland plumbs the world of medicine to uncover the answers to such vitally important questions as:

*What exactly is urine therapy?

*Is it safe to fly with breast implants?

*How did a nine-and-a-half-inch spatula find its way into a surgery patient's body?

*Why do some boxers drink their own pee?

*What is cyclic vomiting syndrome and how can one avoid it?

Any fan of the absurd and/or obscure is sure to delight in this strange (and slightly stomach-turning) book.

Well, a different read full of interesting little stories from way back and when and recent. Each question and answer has to do with medical happenings and myths debunked. Unfortunately, my review for this book will be short and sweet. It was a great non fiction read, very random and one may call a great toilet book. It was a book that my dad would definitely enjoy for its quirky facts. I would pass this book along to all my friends who love to read quirky little books and learn quirky facts.
