Thomas Gibson Health: Is He Sick of Cancer or Something?

Thomas Gibson Cancer Fan Concerns and Other Stuff. One of our television crushes back in the 1990s is Dharma and Greg’s Thomas Gibson. He’s cute, he’s fun, he’s lovable, he’s hot. So we were alarmed when we watched the video above (he’s talking about his photography hobby) because he just does not look well.

We thought it’s simply a matter of him not aging well but others across the internets have expressed alarm about whether Thomas is sick of something. Watch this video and tell us what you think.

Celebrity Albinos: Famous People With Albinism

Celebrity Albinos: Famous People With Albinism. When male model Shaun Ross guested on the most recent episode of America’s Next Top Model, our friend Deena turned to us and said, “Aside from Shaun, are there other famous or celebrity albinos in Hollywood or elsewhere?” I was like, “Hmmm. I think that guy with Tom Cruise in the Da Vinci Code is an albino.”

It turns out however that I was wrong for the guy, actor Paul Bettany, is not an albino. Apparently, he was made to look like one because the role he played required that he be one.

Celebrities With Bad Breath: Halitosis in Hollywood

Celebrities With Bad Breath (Updated from 2009). Ever been turned off by bad breath? Well, you are not alone. In fact, we can’t think of anyone who isn’t turned off by bad breath. The problem, of course, is that we can’t tell whether we ourselves have bad breath. So we don’t know whether a promising prospective date/spouse/partner is turning their backs on us because of our stinky breath.

Anyhoo, here’s a Star Magazine blind item about a celebrity who apparently needs some halitosis treatment: “Which hunky actor is a real stinker? His girlfriend has refused his kisses because of his seriously bad breath. Maybe that’s the reason they’re constantly on and off.”

Any idea who the guy is? None? Well, it could be anyone in Hollywood. Celebrities, after all, are just like us. They may make millions but they too can stink.

Tapeworm Diet Good or Bad, Side Effects, Effectiveness

Tapeworm Diet Good or Bad, Side Effects, Effectiveness. Years later, we are updating this post to note that there really is no evidence that this diet is effective at all. Jolene Korkoro, a researcher from Stanford University, looked into the matter and concluded that you are better off cutting calories and exercising.

She wriets: “Though the use of tapeworms for weight loss seems promising, there is not enough evidence available to suggest that this type of weight loss is sustainable, healthy, and actually effective. Historically, this practice was not widespread and with good reason. The majority of the evidence currently available suggests that ingesting tapeworms for weight loss is ineffective and even harmful to the host. Having a tapeworm in your body comes with substantial risks that are shown to outweigh the potential weight loss. There is evidence that hosts do lose some weight while having a tapeworm inside of them; however, this is not known to be due to the absorption of calories and nutrients alone, but from other side effects that occur in conjunction with hosting a tapeworm. People seeking to lose weight would be better off cutting calories and exercising than risking hosting a tapeworm in their intestines.”

Tape Worm Weight Loss Diet Side Effects. Well, the most important side effect of this dangerous diet is that you could die from it. Among other things, it can also cause bloating, malnutrition, headache, nausea, intestinal blockages, abdominal pain, constipation, weakness, and diarrhea.
