I will be the first person to tell you I’m TERRIFIED OF INSECTS! I really am. They just gross me out. The fact that there are over 950,000 species doesn’t help. Some insects I can handle, like ants. Unless they look like this. But for the other 949,999 I just can’t handle it. Although, I do realize that without insects we wouldn’t exist as they are extremely beneficial.
If all insects on Earth disappeared, within 50 years all life on Earth would end. If all human beings disappeared from the Earth, within 50 years all forms of life would flourish. – Jonas Salk, biologist
I’m constantly looking up new medical procedures and cures. So this one video really caught my eye and it happened to be leeches. Now, its established that I’m petrified of insects. However, if leeches can cure psoriasis and eczema, I will jump into a container full of them head first a la Fear Factor style. Mark my words! Seriously, the leeches can dig in, like its Christmas at Buckingham Palace. That’s how badly I want it to disappear. Could my fear actually be beneficial? One can only wonder.
Not sure how well this works, but take a look at how a doctor treats his patient in India (traditional healers).
