What Rossi's Reading: A Bit Too Hairy
We all have a particular habit we’d like to get rid off, right? An 11-year old girl in Mumbai, India, was hospitalised with a stomach ache and, when surgeons operated, what they found in there was a foot-long hairball. Known as trichobozear, it’s a condition in which patients pull their hair out and, in many cases, eat it.
While the condition is not well known, doctors say that it may afflict one per cent of all Americans. The girl in Mumbai was quite lucky - doctors extracted the enormous hairball from her body and saved her life.
