Couple of fun ones tonight, first one is a pretty sweet video about quick cooking a turkey (they do mention a thermometer, but I don’t see it being used).
Second one is a nice food safety story about what happens when you eat your hair. Here’s a preview picture (this was removed from an 18-year-old girl).
from a New England Journal of Medicine article covered on CNN:
She complained of a five-month history of pain and swelling in her abdomen, vomiting after eating and a 40-pound weight loss.
After a scan of the woman’s abdomen showed a large mass, doctors lowered a scope through her esophagus.
"On questioning, the patient stated that she had had a habit of eating her hair for many years — a condition called trichophagia," the authors of the article wrote.
My favourite part of the article is:
A year later, the pain and vomiting were gone, the patient had regained 20 pounds "and reports that she has stopped eating her hair."
