  • Raj Mohan can withstand several amps of electricity passing through his body without any bodily harm
  • Although his eyes get glazed over when the current passes through his body, rendering him temporarily blind
  • Raj’s body is over 10 times more resistant than that of an average human

Truth is stranger than fiction Indeed! Do you know what happens if you pass a tenth of an amp through a human’s body? He/she will die without any question, due to electrocution. Surprisingly, this is not true for the Electric Man of India- Raj Mohan Nair.

This man can do extraordinary things as his body is immune to high voltage electricity. He can withstand several amps of electricity passing through his body without any bodily harm. This Human conductor wraps exposed wires around his body, and electricity flows from main plug, through his body, to electric bulbs, iron plates etc, said the incredibleweird.com report.

While a fraction of one ampere is enough to kill an ordinary human being, this man can conduct several amps through his body without any harm caused. With one wire in his mouth for better conductivity and the other anywhere else on his body, Mohan lets the electrical current run through him and into whatever other device he’s trying to power on.

He got to know about his super-power when he was just 7 years old. He said, “I lost my mother and was depressed. Finally, I decided to end my life by climbing the transformer and grabbing a live wire. To my amazement, nothing happened to me. It was then I realized that I had been blessed with a gift from God.”

The incredibleweird.com report said, there is nothing special about his looks but witnessing him while preparing chicken by grabbing a hot plate in his own hands will surely leave you in complete shock. If this much amount of current passes through a normal person for just a fraction of second then it causes permanent muscle damage and may stop one’s heartbeat.

Although, his eyes get glazed over when the current passes through his body, rendering him temporarily blind. After testing Raj Mohan Nair’s resistance to electricity using a multimeter, Daniel Browning Smith found that Raj’s body is over 10 times more resistant than that of an average human. He has capabilities, which no ordinary human possesses.

Drugs That Suppress Immune System May Protect Against Parkinson’s

Immunosuppresive drugs likely to keep Parkinson's at bay

People who are on drugs to suppress their immune system are less likely to develop Parkinson’s disease — a neurological disorder characterised by tremors, slow movements, stiffness and difficulty walking, a new study claimed.

The results, published in the journal Annals of Clinical and Translational Neurology, showed that people with several types of autoimmune diseases, including ulcerative colitis were less likely to be diagnosed with Parkinson’s than the general population.

The investigators noted that many autoimmune diseases have one common thing, that is, they are treated with drugs that dampen immune activity.

“We’ve found that taking certain classes of immunosuppressant drugs reduces the risk of developing Parkinson’s. One group of drugs in particular looks really promising and warrants further investigation to determine whether it can slow disease progression,” said Brad Racette from Washington University-St. Louis in the US.

The study showed that people taking corticosteroids — used for treating inflammatory diseases — such as prednisone were 20 per cent less likely to be diagnosed with Parkinson’s, while those on inosine monophosphate dehydrogenase (IMDH)– an enzyme — inhibitors were about one-third less likely.

While, immunosuppresive drugs may keep Parkinson’s at bay, it may ,however, increase the chances of developing infectious diseases and cancer.

The benefits of these drugs outweigh the costs for people with serious autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis but doctors would probably hesitate to prescribe risky drugs to healthy people to stave off Parkinson’s, especially since there is no reliable way to predict who is on track to develop the disease, the team explained.

“What we really need is a drug for people who are newly diagnosed, to prevent the disease from worsening. It’s a reasonable assumption that if a drug reduces the risk of getting Parkinson’s, it also will slow disease progression, and we’re exploring that now,” Racette said.

For the study, the team analysed prescription drug data on 48,295 people diagnosed with Parkinson’s and 52,324 people never diagnosed with Parkinson’s and developed an algorithm to predict which people would be diagnosed with the disease. (IANS)
