A witty, highly entertaining compendium of the many obscure potential killers that lurk in modern society.  From telephone stroke (holding the receiver too tightly to one’s head) to the most common housework-related fatalities among men, health journalist John Naish culls the most intriguing, odd, and completely true medical findings and bizarre syndromes.
 
Fans of The Worst Case Scenario books and Schott’s Original Miscellany will revel in this latest addition to the reference shelf. But don’t let it make you fret too much—research shows that worrying about your health quadruples your chances of an early death.
