Weird Stories From Around the World....

(EDIT: Now under cut and if you're really nervous about it first thing in the mornign I wouldn't read the news story either as that also contains the same piccies. Or look at my Friends page for a bit as at least two people on there - mindcube and warrenelliscom are running the same story.)

Bizarre Baby Born in Dolakha (eKantipur.com; Nepals #1 News Portal; 29th March 2006)

Type your cut contents here.




Apparently there is actually a very rare condition that causes this (it's called Anencephaly). I wanted to find out more about this as I felt it was a weird hoax but it surprisingly seems real. Just goes to show we live in a very weird world sometimes.....



Fact About Kantipur Report (Nepalese Medical Site)

Wikipedia: Anencephaly (also contains links to pictures of other cases and specimens)

what astonishes me is the number of cases in the US of this! OK, so many are terminated, but even so 1000 - 2000 a year is a lot.

Probably the poor diet in the US, its a neural tube defect which I think is related to folic acid. I was quite shocked by the number of live births

ugghh
interesting - in an horific way. What the picture doesn't show you is that the babies head is open at the top! I followed the links in wikipedia (not recommended if you're sensitive). Just another case of Mother Nature being grim. Can't imagine how the mother must feel.
