Are you a fan of “CHEESE” or “PLASTIC” ? either way you would never be a fan of plastic cheese that can kill you (VIDEO)

Chef discovers cheese that does’t melt, instead it burns and turns black, now how about that…

While most cheese fans will delight in a strong cheddar, the durability of this cheese takes things to a whole new level.

A chef from Mexico has carried out a shocking experiment which reveals how a slice of processed cheese fails to melt when held over a naked flame.

In a bid to make a statement about processed foods, he filmed himself holding the supermarket cheese directly over the heat.

But instead of melting as some might expect, the cheese merely blackens – just like plastic would.

She Had Headaches Upon Headaches Only To Find out Something Was Living Inside Her Brain

It’s the stuff of nightmares. You’ve been having random, intense headaches for months, for no apparent reason. You finally turn to your doctor for answers. And their answer is…

A parasite. And not just a single parasite. EIGHT tapeworm eggs lodged firmly in your brain, surviving off your blood supply and beginning to grow.

That’s exactly what happened to 31-year-old Yadira Rostro, a woman from Garland, Texas. After suffering with headaches and loss of vision, Rostro went to the hospital – only to be informed sacs of larvae from tapeworm eggs had begun to grow inside her brain.

The parasites were likely picked up on a holiday two years ago, where Rostro may have ingested food contaminated with fecal matter containing a tapeworm or an egg (a common way for tapeworms to transfer between hosts). Tapeworms normally pass through the body in a reasonably harmless manner, but occasionally the worm can travel to different parts of the body via the bloodstream and end up lodged somewhere you really don’t want them.

The eggs have since been removed and Rostro is expected to make a full recovery.

‘Mummy, please let me die,’ begs boy, 5, with eczema

A five-year-old who suffers such severe eczema he can barely walk has told his mother he wants to die rather than suffer any more pain.

Dana Bishop, 36, says her son Morgan has battled the skin condition since he was four months old.

His family are now at breaking point, having tried almost every treatment available on the NHS – including a form of chemotherapy.

The skin on his feet and legs has become so sore he cannot walk, meaning he has to use a mobility scooter to move around during a flare-up.

And as the eczema stops him from sleeping, he can only attend school for half days at a time and is rarely able to play with his friends.

Dana Bishop, 36, says her five-year-old son Morgan suffers such severe eczema he can barely walk and is in such pain he has begged to die

‘We’ve lost part of Morgan’s personality to the eczema,’ said Mrs Bishop, of Tadworth, Surrey, who has had to give up work as a family support worker to care for her son.

‘We haven’t got lives. Winter is hell for his skin because of the central heating and cold weather, but we rarely go outside in the summer either as heat and pollen aggravate the eczema too.

‘There’s no respite for us. On his fifth birthday, Morgan told me he’d rather die than cope with the pain of eczema anymore – it was heartbreaking to hear.’

Morgan is often exhausted after being in too much pain to sleep at night and so attends school in the morning and naps in the afternoon.

During school hours, he gets too distracted by his itchy skin to even hold a pencil.

The skin on the soles of his feet and backs of his knees is so cracked and sore that he can barely walk

‘He’ll come home from school and tell me that he tried to play with his friends, but had to sit out after just a few steps,’ Mrs Bishop said.

‘When it gets really bad, it almost looks like an acid burn.

‘His one-year-old brother Jenson is very understanding. He’ll see Morgan scratching and try to help by rubbing his cream in for him.

Mrs Bishop and her husband Paul, 43, say they are ‘constantly’ applying cream to Morgan throughout the day – far more than the four to six times recommended.

The couple also swaddle him in a wet wrap every night.

Over the past eight months, they say they have experienced just four ‘good days’ where Morgan’s skin does not flare up.

‘It’s an emotional rollercoaster, we’ll have snippets where he’s comfortable and we can see glimmers of his happy, chatty personality, then the itching starts again and he becomes irritable and irrational,’ Mrs Bishop said.

As well eczema, schoolboy has asthma and life-threatening nephotic syndrome, which sees large amounts of protein leak out of his kidneys.

Mrs Bishop believes the immune suppressing drugs her son must take to combat his kidney problems have, in turn worsened his eczema.

He also has more than 20 allergies including eggs, nuts, dairy, potatoes, soya and rice.

Doctors are doing a process of elimination to work out exactly what Morgan is allergic or intolerant to, but currently, there’s very little he can eat.

'We've lost part of Morgan's personality to the eczema,' Mrs Bishop said, who says he has rare moments of being happy and chatty, as the condition leaves him irritable and miserable

Now, the Bishop family, pictured in Disney World, are fundraising to take Morgan to a hydrotherapy clinic in France for treatment\

They have suggested the family feed him via a tube directly into his stomach, and introduce one food at a time to see what he can tolerate.

However, Mrs Bishop believes this approach is likely to be difficult as Morgan won’t understand why he is being denied his favourite foods.

She said: ‘But he’s already experienced food so he’ll know what he’s missing. He’s too old to not realise what’s going on but too young to rationalise with and understand that it’ll be for his own good.

‘He’s very strong-willed, so I know he’ll just pull the tube out.’

Scouring the internet for help, Mr and Mrs Bishop recently discovered a hydrotherapy clinic called the Avene Centre in France.

The centre offer treatments in warm water and wraps which claim to treat eczema and psoriasis.

Boasting several success stories, Mrs Bishop believes it is their last chance to help Morgan.

She has now set up a GoFundMe page to raise the funds required for a three-week course of treatment, which will include the hydrotherapy with natural spring water and consultations with leading dermatologists.

Mr Bishop is also planning a 900 mile charity bike ride to help with costs.

The Bishop family say they are 'constantly' applying cream to Morgan's skin and he  must be swaddled in a wet wrap at night

Despite this, he is still unable to sleep and is often exhausted in the day, napping all afternoon

'People don't recognise skin conditions as debilitating. They hear eczema and just think it's a bit of dry skin, but the reality can be much, much worse,' Mrs Bishop said

‘All Morgan wants is for the itching to stop,’ Mrs Bishop said.

‘He always asks me if I can make it stop in time for Christmas or his birthday.

‘Since discovering the Avene Centre, I’ve spoken to parents all over the world who’ve been in our shoes.

People don’t recognise skin conditions as debilitating. They hear eczema and just think it’s a bit of dry skin, but the reality can be much, much worse
Dana Bishop, 36

‘One man said his little girl was so ill she had to be physically carried everywhere, but halfway through her first session it was like a light switched on and she came back to life.

‘We’re praying the same happens to Morgan.’

Aside from fundraising, the family are focusing their attention on Morgan’s Mission, a Facebook page they have set up for their son to raise awareness of his condition.

Mrs Bishop said her ultimate aim is to register Morgan’s Mission as a charity.

‘People don’t recognise skin conditions as debilitating. They hear eczema and just think it’s a bit of dry skin, but the reality can be much, much worse,’ she said.

‘We want to help other families like us get the help and understanding they need.’

WHAT IS ECZEMA?

Eczema is an inflammatory skin condition associated with dry patches of hot, itchy skin

Eczema is an inflammatory skin condition associated with dry patches of hot, itchy skin

WHAT IS IT?

Eczema, or allergic dermatitis, is an inflammatory skin condition associated with dry patches of hot, itchy skin.

When severe, these areas can become broken, raw and may bleed. The itching can be incessant and intense.

It commonly affects the upper hands, elbows, back of the knees and face, devastating people’s confidence and making movement and sleep uncomfortable.

The condition tends to be triggered by a variety of irritants.

WHO GETS IT?

Eczema affects up to one-fifth of all children and one in 12 adults. It affects both males and females equally.

While there is no guarantee a child will grow out of eczema, research has shown that 60-70 per cent of children are virtually clear of the condition by the time they reach their mid-teens.

WHAT CAUSES IT?

It is closely linked with asthma and hayfever and is thought to be an allergic condition in which the immune system overreacts to harmless particles that come into contact with the skin, causing red, itchy patches of inflammation.

Triggers may include dust, pollen, detergents and foods, ranging from eggs and yeast to oranges.

The allergic reactions may develop and worsen over a period of time, as the immune system begins to react more intensely to the irritants.

Eczema is also linked to dry skin, and it has been suggested that a lack of oils and natural moisture factors in the sufferer’s skin may make them more vulnerable to skin inflammation and irritation.

Did you know the Sour Sop fruit is a natural cancer killer

The Sour Sop or the fruit is “10000 times stronger killer of CANCER than Chemo”

The Sour Sop or the fruit from the graviola tree is a miraculous natural cancer cell killer 10,000 times stronger than Chemo.

Why are we not aware of this? Its because some big corporation want to make back their money spent on years of research by trying to make a synthetic version of it for sale.

So, since you know it now you can help a friend in need by letting him know or just drink some sour sop juice yourself as prevention from time to time. The taste is not bad after all. It’s completely natural and definitely has no side effects. If you have the space, plant one in your garden.
The other parts of the tree are also useful.

The next time you have a fruit juice, ask for a sour sop.

How many people died in vain while this billion-dollar drug maker concealed the secret of the miraculous Graviola tree?

This tree is low and is called graviola ! in Brazi l, guanabana in Spanish and has the uninspiring name “sour-sop” in English. The fruit is very large and the subacid sweet white pulp is eaten out of hand or, more commonly, used to make fruit drinks, sherbets and such.

The principal interest in this plant is because of its strong anti-cancer effects. Although it is effective for a number of medical conditions, it is its anti tumor effect that is of most interest. This plant is a proven cancer remedy for cancers of all types.

Besides being a cancer remedy, graviola is a broad spectrum antimicrobial agent for both bacterial and fungal infections, is effective against internal parasites and worms, lowers high blood pressure and is used for depression, stress and nervous disorders.

If there ever was a single example that makes it dramatically clear why the existence of Health Sciences Institute is so vital to Americans like you, it’s the incredible story behind the Graviola tree..

The truth is stunningly simple: Deep within the Amazon Rain forest grows a tree that could literally revolutionize what you, your doctor, and the rest of the world thinks about cancer treatment and chances of survival. The future has never looked more promising.

Research shows that with extracts from this miraculous tree it now may be possible to:
* Attack cancer safely and effectively with an all-natural therapy that does not cause extreme nausea, weight loss and hair loss
* Protect your immune system and avoid deadly infections
* Feel stronger and healthier throughout the course of the treatment
* Boost your energy and improve your outlook on life

The source of this information is just as stunning: It comes from one of America ‘s largest drug manufacturers, th! e fruit of over 20 laboratory tests conducted since the 1970’s! What those tests revealed was nothing short of mind numbing… Extracts from the tree were shown to:

* Effectively target and kill malignant cells in 12 types of cancer, including colon, breast, prostate, lung and pancreatic cancer..
* The tree compounds proved to be up to 10,000 times stronger in slowing the growth of cancer cells than Aureomycin, a commonly used chemotherapeutic drug!
* What’s more, unlike chemotherapy, the compound extracted from the Graviola tree selectively hunts
down and kills only cancer cells.. It does not harm healthy cells!

The amazing anti-cancer properties of the Graviola tree have been extensively researched–so why haven’t you heard anything about it? If Graviola extract is

One of America ‘s biggest billion-dollar drug makers began a search for a cancer cure and their research centered on Graviola, a legendary healing tree from the Amazon Rainforest.

Various parts of the Graviola tree–including the bark, leaves, roots, fruit and fruit-seeds–have been used for centuries by medicine men and native Indi! ans in S outh America to treat heart disease, asthma, liver problems and arthritis. Going on very little documented scientific evidence, the company poured money and resources into testing the tree’s anti-cancerous properties–and were shocked by the results. Graviola proved itself to be a cancer-killing dynamo.
But that’s where the Graviola story nearly ended.

The company had one huge problem with the Graviola tree–it’s completely natural, and so, under federal law, not patentable. There’s no way to make serious profits from it.

It turns out the drug company invested nearly seven years trying to synthesize two of the Graviola tree’s most powerful anti-cancer ingredients. If they could isolate and produce man-made clones of what makes the Graviola so potent, they’d be able to patent it and make their money back. Alas, they hit a brick wall. The original simply could not be replicated. There was no way the company could protect its profits–or even make back the millions it poured into research.

As the dream of huge profits evaporated, their testing on Graviola came to a screeching halt. Even worse, the company shelved the entire project and chose not to publish the findings of its research!

Luckily, however, there was one scientist from the Graviola research team whose conscience wouldn’t let him see such atrocity committed. Risking his career, he contacted a company that’s dedicated to harvesting medical plants from the Amazon Rainforest and blew the whistle.

Miracle unleashed
When researchers at the Health Sciences Institute were alerted to the news of Graviola,! they be gan tracking the research done on the cancer-killing tree. Evidence of the astounding effectiveness of Graviola–and its shocking cover-up–came in fast and furious….

….The National Cancer Institute performed the first scientific research in 1976. The results showed that Graviola’s “leaves and stems were found effective in attacking and destroying malignant cells.” Inexplicably, the results were published in an internal report and never released to the public…

….Since 1976, Graviola has proven to be an immensely potent cancer killer in 20 independent laboratory tests, yet no double-blind clinical trials–the typical benchmark mainstream doctors and journals use to judge a treatment’s value–were ever initiated….

….A study published in the Journal of Natural Products, following a recent study conducted at Catholic University of South Korea stated that one chemical in Graviola was found to selectively kill colon cancer cells at “10,000 times the potency of (the commonly used chemotherapy drug) Adriamycin…”

….The most significant part of the Catholic University of South Korea report is that Graviola was shown to selectively target the cancer cells, leaving healthy cells untouched. Unlike chemotherapy, which indiscriminately targets all actively reproducing cells (such as stomach and hair cells), causing the often devastating side effects of nausea and hair loss in cancer patients.

…A study at Purdue University recently found that leaves from the Graviola tree killed cancer cells among six human cell lines and were especially effective against prostate, pancreatic and lung cancers Seven years of silence broken–it’s finally here!!!

This Product also help go for it…

Graviola 750, Maximize, Maximum International, 100 Veggie Caps, 5 bottles
It cured Cancer probably reduce it to Zero
Healthy Cell Formation, immune system
Prevention of abnormal cellular division
Cleaning abnormal tissue growth
Anti-tumor agents, anti-tumors, antimicrobial

Transgender German man give birth to a baby

A Berlin man has become the first in Germany to give birth to a baby.
He identifies as male, but has a female reproductive system.
The baby boy was born on March 18th this year in a home birth, as hospitals are required to write the name of the mother in their records when a child is born.

It was delivered with the help of a midwife in the Neukölln area of Berlin.
On government records the new father, who is transgender, is registered as a man.
This makes him the first male in Germany to give birth, Berlin newspapers reported on Monday.
He reportedly became pregnant through a sperm donation.
Officially the child does not have a mother, only a father.
The case is reminiscent of transgender Thomas Beatie who has given birth to three children in the US.
Transgender people are able to give birth to children because even when a woman undergoes hormone therapy to become more physically masculine, they can retain female organs.

Early life

Born Tracy Lehuanani LaGondino, Beatie was born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii, the first of two children. His mother was from San Francisco, and of English, Irish, Scottish, and Welsh descent. His father, of Korean and Filipino decent, was born and raised in Hawaii.[5] As a teenager, Beatie was a female model and Miss Teen Hawaii USA pageant finalist.[6] He appeared regularly on the nationally televised aerobics workout series and video, Basic Training with Ada Janklowicz, and later became a competitive bodybuilder.

In 1996, Beatie graduated from the University of Hawaii with a bachelor’s degree in Health Science (Pre-med) and later pursued an Executive MBA. In 1997, he founded Define Normal, a progressive clothing company, which has since expanded in federal trademark to film and video production. He competed in full-contact fighting and was a black belt and tournament champion in Taekwondo.

Gender transition and marriage

At the age of 10, Beatie started to self-identify with the male gender.[12] At 23 years old, he began testosterone hormone treatment to transition to living life as a man.

(DO U WANT TO DIET? THINK AGAIN) Dying anorexic actress Rachael Farrokh’s video plea touches hearts across the world. People begin to reach and help her, her thank you speech will melt any warm heart

A dying anorexic actress whose desperate plea for help touched hearts across the world is finally receiving life-saving treatment at a California hospital – and has stood up for the first time in months.

Rachael Farrokh, 37, who is five-foot-seven and weighs a mere ’40-something’ pounds, made the headlines in May after posting a video online, detailing her 10-year battle with anorexia nervosa.

In the footage, she explained how her condition had declined in recent months – but no hospitals near her San Clemente home would treat her because her ‘dangerous’ weight made her a ‘liability’.

In subsequent weeks, well-wishers raised nearly $200,000 in donations for Ms Farrokh, some of which were spent on a ‘handpicked’ medical team, which provided medical care at her bedside.

But now, Ms Farrokh has eventually been accepted into the UC San Diego Medical Center after

Contrast: Ms Farrokh is pictured in a previous YouTube video (left), thanking well-wishers for raising nearly $200,000, and posing with her devoted husband, Rod Edmondson (right), before her condition worsened

The actress’s devoted husband, Rod Edmondson, who quit his job to become his wife’s 24-hour caregiver when her condition worsened, shared the ‘exciting news’ on Facebook on June 20.

The ex-personal trainer said: ‘We finally made it! Thanks to all of you who have been sending good thoughts… We are so excited to tell everyone that we are now safely in an Eating Disorder facility.

‘We have a lot of work ahead of us but with the love and support we will fight this to recovery!’

He added that doctors at Denver Health Medical Center – the only hospital that had initially agreed to treat Ms Farrokh – had ruled it was too dangerous to airlift her to its ACUTE eating disorder center.

‘Due to the concerns the doctors had at the hospital about her taking a medical airlift, they reached out to multiple hospitals,’ he told the 3,600 people he is now friends with on his Facebook page.

‘UCSD had called us recently and after much back and forth, they thankfully decided to take her on. It was only about an hour by ambulance and she handled it like a champ.’

Aside from therapy to build up her strength, the details of Ms Farrokh’s treatment remain unclear.

Staff will likely attempt to start the refeeding process without giving her too many calories at once (something Mr Edmondson warns could ‘kick up her metabolism’ and cause even more weight loss).

In good spirits: Ms Farrokh is pictured being wheeled into the UC San Diego Medical Center on June 20 after doctors at a hospital in Denver, Colorado, apparently determined it was too risky for her to be flown there

Since Ms Farrokh’s admission to the hospital, Mr Edmondson has uploaded several videos of his wife, including one of her meeting Chopper the Biker Dog, a Boston terrier that visits hospitals.

In the latest video, Ms Farrokh is captured using a specialized machine to stand up – something she has not been able to do since her decade-long disorder severely declined, leaving her bed-bound.

With a harness around her back and a nurse beside her, the patient visibly strains and grits her teeth as she pulls herself to her feet. Mr Edmondson captioned the footage: ‘#determination.’

He told his Facebook friends of his wife: ‘Even though she has been working daily through a lot of pain, she has kept her promise and is fighting hard. We thank you for your encouraging words.’

It comes just five weeks after Ms Farrokh posted a video on YouTube thanking well-wishers for their donations – now totaling a whopping $196,427 – which she said had given her ‘a chance to live’.

Sitting in her bed with a black vest top exposing her tiny frame, she told viewers: ‘Hi, everyone. It’s me, Rachael. I want to thank you all for everything you are doing for us. It’s been so overwhelmingly good in our lives. And i actually have a chance to live. What you guys have done has been amazing.’

‘Because of you guys, I was able to see the doctor again. She instructed me on what the proper care right now for me is – to stay here. And she arranged for having a handpicked team of what I need to be brought here at my bedside, until I can build up to get to the treatment I can get to.

We are so excited to tell everyone that we are now safely in an Eating Disorder facility. We have a lot of work ahead of us but with the love and support we will fight this to recovery!
Rod Edmondson, husband

‘But right now, the treatment that I need is coming here – and it’s because of you. And it’s going to be a long recovery, could be three to five years… but with your support, I know I can do this.’

Ms Farrokh’s ‘handpicked’ medical team included a doctor, a registered nurse, a therapist, and other specialists.

The video was posted several weeks after Ms Farrokh uploaded her first video to YouTube, pleading with viewers to help her conquer her ‘very severe kind of anorexia’ by donating ‘anything you can’.

In the first video, a gaunt-looking Ms Farrokh said: ‘I’ve been suffering from this for quite a while now. I’m five-[foot]-seven, 40-something pounds and no hospitals will even take me at this point.

‘There’s one hospital across the country [Denver Health Medical Center] that can help, and my chances are very slim. We need your help. Rod is now my 24-hour caregiver.

‘In order for us to get [to the hospital that can help]…and I’m not one to ever ask for help…I need your help, otherwise I don’t have a shot. And I’m ready to get better.’

Ms Farrokh met Mr Edmondson, 41, while he was working as a personal trainer at her gym. Prior to her battle with anorexia, she was a beautiful, active, healthy woman, Mr Edmondson told ABC.

53-year-old woman undergoes life threatening surgery removing her 30-pound breast implants

A woman with 30lb breasts who was told by multiple plastic surgeons that it would be impossible to remove her massive implants, has finally has finally had them taken out – despite the risk of the tissue on her bust turning black and dying during the complex procedure.

On Sunday night’s episode of E! reality series Botched, Dee Stein, 53, from Los Vegas, traveled to Los Angeles to meet with surgeons Paul Nassif and Terry Dubrow in the hopes that they would be willing to take on her ‘impossible’ case and reconstruct her breasts after removing her engorged and deflated implants.

‘Dee’s case by far in away is the most difficult, scariest, challenging, nearly impossible that I have ever seen or ever heard about in plastic surgery,’ Dr Dubrow explained.

Dr Dubrow went on to show Dr Nassif images of Dee’s bust, noting there is a ‘screaming, complaining breast’ on the right side and a deflated ‘disaster’ on the other.

Dee’s ‘old fashioned double-lumen implants’ were 20 years old and featured an internal lumen that was made up of silcone and an external lumen that was filled with saline.

And Dr Dubrow explained that it looked like the saline part on the outside has ruptured on her left breast, causing it to deflate.

‘It is days until this turns into an enormous, major medical emergency for her,’ he told Dr Nassif. ‘The whole breast is going to die.’

Meanwhile, Dee revealed to the cameras that she had seen numerous plastic surgeons, all of whom had denied her the surgery she so desperately needed because of how high-risk the procedure would be.

‘I’ve gone to a lot of doctors that told me that they simply cannot fix me,’ she said tearfully. ‘I totally feel like I don’t have anybody else to turn to at this point.’

And Dr Nassif noted to the cameras: ‘One word to describe Dee’s breasts: wow.’

Dee explained that growing up she always wanted bigger breasts. She had a small size A cup and felt ‘short changed’ in the boob department.

When she took up a position as a professional dancer – in order to provide for her son – the club where she worked sponsored her breast augmentation, the cost of which she was later required to work off. Dee took her size A breasts to what she believes was close to a size FFF with 500cc implants.

But Dee noticed that women with even larger breasts were making more money than she was, so she tripled the size of her implants to 1,300 cc, taking her to an H cup.

She later had her doctor put tissue expanders inside her bust to take her breast implants up to a massive 3,000 cc.

Dee’s engorged breasts made her famous, and soon she was a featured entertainer, traveling all over the world. She posed for numerous magazines featuring large breasted women, including Jugs and Gents.

Her doctor insisted that the massive implants were completely safe and even claimed that even if she got into a car accident, nothing would happen to her implants.

However, despite his reassurance, Dee’s left breast deflated and began leaking saline into her body, while her other implant felt like a rock.

‘I feel like a walking boob and it is killing me inside because I know I am so much better than that,’ she said.

She also wanted her son Anthony, who is a medical student, to be proud of her.

Dee arrived to her consultation with Dr Dubrow and Dr Nassif with her son by her side.

‘It has been extremely difficult dealing with my mother’s situation and I hope she can walk out of this stronger and honestly be able to experience the world as a normal person,’ Anthony said.

During her meeting with the doctors, Dee explained that she was a dancer ‘quite a few years ago’ when she got her first breast implants.

‘It is insane to think that any plastic surgeon would even consider Dee’s breasts to this level,’ Dr Dubrow noted. ‘The human body is not even equipped to handle this kind of volume expansion in breast tissue.’

And Dee told the doctors: ‘I came to you today because I have been told I probably cannot be fixed.’

Knowing that her son is in medical school, Dr Dubrow turned Dee’s plight into a learning moment for her son and asked him why no other doctor will attempt to operate.

‘I think there is a certain level of confidence is removing them,’ Anthony told Dr Dubrow, noting that they have been in her mother’s body for 20 years and there is the question of what they are going to do with what is left over after her implants are taken out.

‘Many doctors do not have the confidence in what they can do to make that normal,’ he added.

Dr Dubrow agreed before saying: ‘In their defense, it is so high risk why would any doctor want to tackle this?’

While Dr Dubrow said that most plastic surgeons would say there is nothing that can be done to save Dee’s breasts, he was willing to try because not only were they ruining her life, but they were also a ‘major medical problem’.

However, Dee noted to the cameras: ‘I’d risk my life for it at this point because I am so uncomfortable. I am in a lot of pain’.

Dr Dubrow explained: ‘I have to take this case on. You cannot leave this woman with these breast that may be developing a breast cancer that will go on to infection.

‘Somebody has to help her.’

For phase one of Dee’s surgeries, Dr Dubrow had to remove her 3,000 cc implants from each breast without rupturing their saline or silicone cores.

The surgeon explained that Dee’s breast tissue was far too thin to do anything else with them at that time, adding that, if he tried to do anything further, her ‘nipples would fall off’.

‘Her immune system as used everything it can to fight off the pressure that her implants have caused on her tissue,’ he said.

Dr Dubrow also noticed that there was a ‘fungus ball’ inside the implant that could have made her seriously ill if it had leaked out.

Because there wasn’t enough blood supply to sustain a breast lift, Dr Dubrow knew that he possibly would have to remove her breasts, but he he hoped her tissue would cooperate during her recovery and give him something to work with.

For her second surgery, Dr Dubrow gave her smaller implants that would give her a D cup, while removing excess skin, noting that it was the most excess skin he has ever had to remove in his entire career.

Throughout both surgeries, his main concern was keeping her nipples and breast tissue alive, explaining: ‘If they turn black, fall off and die, that’s my fault.’

However, despite the odds, Dr Dubrow was able to dramatically transform Dee’s bust, while keeping her nipples intact.

‘What he as done for me is truly amazing,’ Dee said.

Clearly thrilled with her new appearance, Dee couldn’t wait to show her son the results of her surgeries during a video chat.

Anthony was also incredibly happy for his mother, who had a newfound confidence that she didn’t have before.

Another patient featured on this episode was a veteran named Josh, who couldn’t breathe properly through his nose, which he had broken numerous times after accidents and physical altercations.

After joining the military, a doctor told him he could fix his deviated septum and straighten his nose before he was deployed, but despite the promise, Griffin still couldn’t breathe through his nose, which was crooked and wiggled when he spoke.

Griffin had recently finished his second tour in the Middle East and he explained that it is tough being in the desert and having to breathe through his mouth.

‘The last thing I want to do when I am trying to save somebody else’s life or try to preserve my own is worry about being able to breathe,’ he explained.

And Dr Dubrow noted during Griffin’s consultation: ‘This is the most deviated nose I’ve ever seen.’

Dr Nassif said he was would need to take cartilage and tissue from other parts of his body in order to reconstruct his nose.

Although Dr Nassif was worried about running into the same issues as Griffin’s first surgeon did, he was able to straighten his nose and fix his blocked septum.

‘It feels great being able to breath again,’ Griffin said happily after his nose had heeled following his surgery.

During the episode, the doctors also saw Herbert Chavez, from the Philippines, who is obsessed with Superman and hopes to become the ‘Man of Plastic’.

Herbert, who already 23 surgeries to look more like Superman, wanted the doctors to give him a permanent six-pack like the Man of Steel.

However, many of Herbert’s previous surgeries involved treatments and injections that are illegal in the US and only allowed in the Philippines.

Because he had so much poison in his body, Dr Dubrow told him that the risks outweighed the benefits of surgery and there was nothing that they could do.

‘This superhero needs to get in the gym,’ he told Herbert.
