YEP! Eating Squirrel Brains Can KILL You.

A medical report just came out about a 61-year-old guy in Rochester, New York who went to the hospital three years ago after he'd noticed a serious drop in his ability to think and keep track of what was and wasn't reality. 

The doctors diagnosed him with Variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease, or vCJD, which is a fatal brain condition that's EXTREMELY rare.  Only a few hundred cases have ever been reported. 

So how did the guy develop it?  The doctors say it's because he ate SQUIRREL BRAINS. 

That's right.  This guy is a hunter, and apparently during a hunt he ate some squirrel brains . . . either straight up, or some of the brains got mixed in while he was eating squirrel meat. 

So if you want to avoid getting this horrible rare disease . . . um . . . lay off the squirrel brains.  I feel like that's REALLY doable.
