Body Bakery: Bread imitating Gore by Kittiwat Unarrom
This brings weird to a whole new level. Thai Fine Art student and artist Kittiwat Unarrom is the son of a baker. All that baking exposure growing up has been a clear influence, but his artistic need to see things a little differently definitely flared up as he created the tacitly named “Body Bakery” – brutally, gruesomely, almost unbelievably realistic looking sculptures of dismembered human body parts sculpted entirely from bread.
With a master in Fine Arts Kittiwat Unarrom creates sculpture in bread. Not just normal sculpture but horror, dark art, gore, something I don’t know if I could actually eat. Located in Ratchaburi, Thailand Kittiwat creates feet, hands, heads, and internal organs among other body parts all entirely edible and for sale at his family’s bakery. He skillfully paints each piece to look terrifying to the observer/customer.

I can’t believe I’ve never written about this for y’all. It’s such an important part of daily life in the hospital, and yet I’ve totally overlooked it. I feel like I’ve let you guys down.
If you hope to survive long hours in the hospital as a student or resident, you MUST have a secret…
Proud to say I have found a secret loo. Having worked on many wards, I have a collection of door codes for many loos
Please stop complaining about the myriad woes that preparing for a lab practical brings upon you. You’re adults in an elite, competitive professional program that is preparing you to be entrusted with the lives of many, many people. To whom much is given, much is expected. This…
That’s the first nightmare I’ve had in a while, which has woken me up in a hot sweat.
do you ever just want to go outside in the middle of the night and walk around and not actually do anything just observe and think and stuff

Scoliosis is an abnormal lateral curvature of the spine greater than 10 degrees with vertebral rotation. The most common type is adolescent idiopathic scoliosis with males and females equally affected but females 5-10 times more likely to progress to severe disease.
Scoliosis screening can be done during routine school physical exams. The main test used for scoliosis evaluation is the Adams forward bend test, which consists of the patient standing and bending forward at the waist, and the examiner assesses for symmetry of the back from behind and beside the patient. Patients with scoliosis will have a rib hump which is visible on exam. The examiner can then use a scoliometer to determine the amount of spinal curve and rotation. For official diagnosis of scoliosis a Cobb angle measurement using radiography is needed.
The 3 major factors that determine whether scoliosis will progress are female sex, greater magnitude of curve on presentation and growth potential ie younger age. Treatment options include observation, bracing and surgery. > From: Horne et al., Am Fam Physician 89 (2014) 193-198. Copyright American Academy of Family Physicians.
