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.
