Has Science Finally Revealed A Way To Get Rid Of Garlic Breath?


(PCM) Guess what? It may be easier than you think!  At some point in our lives, especially those of us who love garlic, have had to deal with the dreaded stench of “garlic breath” after we have scarfed down a delicious meal. While garlic may taste fantastic when it is being consumed the after effects are often less than desirable. While many turn to items such a gum or mints to hide the effects of “garlic breath”, science has now shown us that other household items can get rid of “garlic breath” once and for all.

Research has now shown chewing on some raw lettuce or eating a few apple slices will significantly reduce the smell of garlic on an individuals breath! See it really is that simple! The study was published in the Journal of Food Science and says “raw lettuce and raw apples reduce the concentration of “aroma volatiles” in your breath by up to 50% within 30 minutes. Cooked apple, apple juice, and cooked or heated lettuce may also be effective as well, but further research would be needed.

So the next time you run out of gum or breath mints when out on a hot date, just reach for that handy head of lettuce or take a trip to the apple orchard and all will be okay!

Patient Discovers That Doctors Accidentally Connected Her Colon To Her Vagina


(PCM) Yes, we can only imagine that this is just about as awful as it gets!  A Macedonian woman by the name of Jasminka Velkovska underwent surgery three years ago to remove cancer from her colon, however when reattaching her colon, they somehow attached it her vagina by mistake.

That is quite a mistake if you ask us!  We can’t even fathom how this type of thing could have possibly happened. Velkovska said she felt a bit uncomfortable after the procedure and slowly began to notice a problem when she began passing gas out of her vagina. She told the local news “While I was recovering, doctors came and asked me if I was passing gas, and I said yes, but it’s coming out of my vagina. They told me that it would soon pass and I would be ok, but stuff had started to come out of my vagina and I was feeling scared and it was all very unpleasant.”

The doctors at the hospital told her she would be fine and it would eventually pass, but boy were they ever wrong. After agreeing to perform an X-ray to get a better look at what was going on the hospital discovered their mistake. The woman’s colon was now connected to her vagina. This sounds like something straight out of a horror film!

To top it off they didn’t even manage to remove the cancer and only agreed to compensate Velkovska a measly $33,000 dollars, outright refusing to pay the entire total. Velkovska is currently filing a lawsuit against the hospital for the full amount, as she has every right to pursue.

She truly deserves millions for that kind of mess up!

Woman Sues Her Parents For Posting Her Embarrassing Baby Photos Online


(PCM) Seriously, people these days will come up with a lawsuit for just about anything! An 18-year old Austrian woman, who wishes to remain anonymous, is suing her own parents for posting embarrassing baby photos of her on Facebook. She claims that over the last seven years her parents have continually posted more than 500 images of her as a baby and refused to take them down even though the woman has requested their removal several times.

It seems she reached her breaking point and made the decision to get the courts involved. Her parents feel that because they took the photos (and you know, she is their daughter and all) that he has the right to post the images. The woman obviously does not feel the same way and says “They knew no shame and no limit—and didn’t care whether it was a picture of me sitting on the toilet or lying naked in my cot—every stage was photographed and then made public.”

Despite how ridiculous this lawsuit seems the woman’s lawyer feels that she has a good chance of victory over her parents if she can show that the images violated her right to a personal life and her parents could be forced to not only pay for her legal fees, but also her “pain and suffering”. Good grief!  Aren’t parents allowed to be proud of their children. More than likely the photos were only posted in good fun.

Why do we get the feeling that if this case succeeds we are going to be seeing more and more of this type of lawsuit popping up all around the world, as we are sure there are more than a few people out there who have some embarrassing baby pictures taken by their parents that they would rather not share with the world a.k.a. Facebook.

Yes, Umbilical Cord Art Is Really A Thing


(PCM) If you are the type to get queasy we suggest you look no further as it seems umbilical cord art is now a thing! New mothers are finding a way to put the umbilical cord to use in several artistic ways. We didn’t even realize that afterbirth crafting was actually a trend!

Looks like the trend of new mothers consuming the placenta directly after birth is on the way out and umbilical cord art is on the way in and both make us equally squeamish. The new mothers are taking the dried up body fluids and tissues from the umbilical cord and crafting it into various shapes such as hearts or spirals and even spelling out the word “love” is an incredibly popular choice.

They are then framing the dried umbilical cord art to hang as wall art either in the nursery or other areas of the home. This is totally not something we would like to walk in and find on someone’s wall, but to each their own it seems. You should see some of the images people have posted on Pinterest and Instagram showcasing this art, as it truly takes things to an entirely new level. Buzzfeed gathered quite a collection to showcase.

The art has been described by new mothers as both “amazing” and “magical”, but others tend to find it a bit disturbing. Many women feel that the last thing on their minds after giving birth to their child would be trying to save the umbilical cord for the sake of art. Either way the trend is beginning to take off and don’t be surprised to see a lot more umbilical cord art pieces hanging in the homes of new parents, disgusting or not!

Murder Suspect Pulls An Epic Escape From Police Custody


(PCM) Las Vegas murder suspect Alonso Perez pulled an Houdini-like escape from police custody while he was being held in a police station interrogation room. Perez was being investigated for the murder of a man outside of a Las Vegas area McDonald’s restaurant.

Once the detective who was interrogating him left the room, Perez was able to somehow break free of his handcuffs and then after a few minutes make his escape through a ceiling tile in the room. Video surveillance captured the entire ordeal, including the leg chains that Perez can still be seen wearing as he hoists his way up into the ceiling.

It seem the no one was watching the surveillance cameras at the time of the incident. Great police work, guys! You can see the look of surprise on Perez’s face when he was able to break out of the handcuffs. He escape was successful, however that success was short-lived as he was later caught and arrested as second time after a four hour stand-off with police and FBI agents.

Seems this Houdini magically added quite a few more charges to his wrap sheet!

What Is With All The Alien Sightings Near Peru? New Video Evidence Surfaces!


(PCM) New video evidence has surfaced from a gas station surveillance camera in Peru that allegedly shows a small alien creature lurking along side the busy roadway.  Apparently, reported alien sights have been a big thing in South America recently, especially near the country of Peru.

This new video is incredibly freaky as you can clear see some kind of creature moving about in the distance. One man, who is definitely braver than any of us, actually attempts to approach the creature, but it takes off quickly into the tall grass.  Currently, experts are trying to determine if the video footage has been tampered with or if this new sighting is some sort of elaborate hoax, but it definitely has people talking!

What do you think? Alien encounter or elaborate hoax?
