Halloween – the time for all those weird oddities to come out of the dark, dank woods stirring our imaginations…
If it were not for Dr. Patrick Nesbitt, a family physician in Vancouver, B.C., this weird oddity may have never posted to this blog again. Dr. Nesbitt delves into the disease, porphyria…the need for blood.
Porphyria is fascinating with multifacited variants that include a werewolf variant, menstrual and chemically-induced variants, and even biological variants. Vincent Van Gogh and King George III, were afflicted as were many others. One in 400 are afflicted. Hm…could someone you know be a porphyriate?
Read more if you dare on Dr. Nesbitt’s special Halloween-edition website.
Thank you, Dr. Nesbitt!
