ER Patient Sews Up Own Leg, the Shocking Amount of Hidden Salt in Your Diet, and It’s Official: High Heels are Bad for You

Swedish emergency room patient tires of waiting and sews up his own leg. Hospital complaint to police: He used a needle and thread without permission.

Adults consume more than 3,400 mgs of sodium on average…more than twice the amount recommended. And this does not include salt used in cooking or sprinkled from a salt shaker.

“Stardust” is more than a song. Each speck is about one-25,000 of an inch across.

High heels are unhealthy. We needed a study to know this?

    I can’t believe the police would be involved when an emergency room patient has to sew up his own leg! What’s next: Arresting a heart attack victim for smuggling in asprin?

    High hells (that’s not a type-o): I can’t wear them. They are agony, both for my knees and my feet. I’d rather look frumpy with flats than wear heels and be in pain.

    Swedish emergency room patient sews up his own leg? Wow! That’s taking consumer-directed health care to the extreme.

    Don’t look down on Swedish hospitals. The same thing could easily happen here.

    I agree on the high heels. I hope they didn’t spend a lot of money on that study.

    I think the Swedish guy should get some kind of award for taking the initiative, solving his own problems and probably saving the health care system money to boot.
