We're back with Katy reporting in from the surface of the sun (...or Seattle in a historic heat cone) with some strange medical mysteries. If you are a hypochondriac... be warned, these maladies are wild and only provide more evidence that the brain is a terrifying place. Learn about aquagenic urticaria, or being ALLERGIC TO WATER, and a mystery brain disease striking in New Brunswick, Canada. Spoiler alert, neither of us are doctors, so please don't take any of this as medically perfect. Katy just researched online, okay? Everything sounds like an episode of House. There are some bonus mysteries discussed, like chimeric people, Foreign Accent Syndrome, and whatever the fuck possessed people to eat rotten meat as a health trend.Sources/Things Mentioned:The "medical mysteries" section of the Washington Post: https://wapo.st/3ycqK4MNew Scientist, "Seven Unsolved Medical Mysteries": https://bit.ly/3w8gvxcBBC, "The Woman Who is Allergic to Water": https://bbc.in/3h7OrpdWikipedia article on aquagenic urticaria: https://bit.ly/2UgT7AlKnow Your Meme, "Fuck Around, Find Out - the Scientific Method": https://bit.ly/2Ue4NntWashington Post, "A mysterious, devastating brain disorder is afflicting dozens in one Canadian province": https://wapo.st/3A9AleuBBC, "Doctors investigate mystery brain disease in Canada": https://bbc.in/3A9ABKuL.A.
