Black tea teeth


An elderly man was hos­pi­tal­ized after spend­ing more than an hour trapped at the bot­tom of a deep toi­let pit at a Geor­gia park.  The man appar­ently fell in after stand­ing on the toi­let instead of sit­ting. The poor guy was trapped for about 70 min­utes, as it took some time for fam­ily mem­bers to become con­cerned and park rep­re­sen­ta­tives had to be sum­moned to unlock the door. The spokes­woman said the man was “cov­ered in mess and scraped up.” He was taken to Mur­ray Med­ical Cen­ter in Chatsworth.

Black teethTea: It’s good for you, but only if you don’t drink too much of it. And by “too much of it,” we mean a pitcher made with 100 to 150 tea bags. That’s how much a Detroit woman drank each day, and doc­tors even­tu­ally real­ized that her years of back, arm, leg, and hip pains were caused by the tea habit, accord­ing to the New Eng­land Jour­nal of Med­i­cine. It seems the high level of fluoride—brewed tea has a bunch—was to blame, the Detroit Free Press explains. It caused a bone dis­ease known as skele­tal flu­o­ro­sis, and also made her teeth brit­tle. They all had to be removed. After coun­sel­ing, the woman is no longer drink­ing tea and is doing better.

Gra­ciela Ayala told cops she just wanted to have one last beer before sur­ren­der­ing, a plan that went south when she and her trav­el­ing com­pan­ion decided to make that six brewskis – which they stole from a con­ve­nience store before peel­ing out in a hot pink Crown Vic­to­ria. Local deputies quickly got on her trail, as did a police heli­copter, but she kept dri­ving – broad sid­ing at least one inno­cent bystander’s car in the process. Even­tu­ally, one cop car rammed Ayala’s vehi­cle, spin­ning it around and bring­ing her to her senses – long enough to drive into the jail’s park­ing lot, where she was cuffed.
