Also on this episode, look out for two health stories that are sure to shock and amaze. Tanya Angus was just a normal college girl. She stopped eating, but things got so out of control that she developed an overactive pituitary gland. Tanya’s doctors didn’t believe in Acromegaly, where the pituitary gland grows so large that it causes the rest of the body to grow to catch up.
Plus, Sierra Downing was just seven years old when she was diagnosed with Bubonic Plague. The disease took out 1/3 of Europe over 600s years ago. There are about 10 cases of the plague annually. She got bug bites after coming across a dead squirrel on a picnic. This lead to seizures, a 107 degree fever, and horrible sickness.
