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.
