  • 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.

Here’s how HIV Patients Lose Immunity to Smallpox Despite of Vaccinations

HIV patients lose smallpox immunity despite vaccine says a new study by health experts

HIV patients lose immunity to smallpox even though they were vaccinated against the disease as children and have had much of their immune system restored with anti-retroviral therapy, says a new study.

Antiretroviral therapy (ART) is the use of HIV medicines to treat HIV infection. It helps people with HIV live longer, healthier lives and reduces the risk of HIV transmission.

The study, published in the Journal of Infectious Diseases on HIV-associated immune amnesia could explain why people living with HIV still tend to have shorter lives on average than their HIV-negative counterparts despite being on antiretroviral therapy.

The study follows other research recently published in the journals Science and Science Immunology that found the immune systems of children who contracted measles similarly ‘forgot’ their immunity against other illnesses such as influenza.

For the study, lead researcher Mark K. Slifka from Oregon Health and Science University in US, and his colleagues compared the T-cell and antibody responses of a total of 100 HIV-positive and HIV-negative women who were vaccinated against smallpox in their youth.

The research team chose smallpox because its last known US case was in 1949, meaning study participants haven’t recently been exposed to its virus, which would have triggered new T-cell and antibody responses.

They found the immune systems of HIV-positive women who were on antiretroviral therapy had a limited response when their blood was exposed to the vaccina virus, which is used in the smallpox vaccine.

Normally, those vaccinated against smallpox have CD4 T cells that remember the virus and respond in large numbers when they’re exposed again.

Previous research has shown smallpox virus-specific CD4 T cells are maintained for up to 75 years after vaccination.

This finding happened despite the fact that antiretroviral therapy works by boosting CD4 T cell counts in HIV-positive patients.

This indicates that while antiretroviral therapy may boost total T cell counts overall, it can’t recover virus-specific T cells generated from prior childhood vaccinations.

The research team plans to evaluate whether the same phenomenon occurs in HIV-infected men, and if people living with HIV also lose immune memory to other diseases.

Researchers from SUNY Downstate, Georgetown University, Cornell University, University of Southern California and John Hopkins University, also contributed to this study. (IANS)
