Emily Blunt SHOCKED At Effects Of Tropical Diseases — Wants To Help!

Filed under: InspirationEmily BluntTom FeltonHealthCharity

It is both shockingly cheap and shockingly easy to help END7 bring an end to 7 common yet devastating tropical diseases.

What isn't easy is witnessing what the diseases do to the 1 billion people suffering from them.

In the video above, celebrity advocates for the cause sit down and watch exactly what they're fighting — and the team at END7 filmed their reactions. It's raw.

Emily Blunt, Tom Felton and a number of other stars have joined END7’s campaign to fight and control the seven most prevalent tropical diseases, including hookworm, elephantiasis and river blindness. With help, they can bring an end to it all by 2020. That's only 7 years away!

Here's what Emily said:

“Until recently, I didn’t even know these diseases existed. The serious disabilities and suffering they inflict on the world’s poorest people is heart-wrenching. But I was inspired to join the END7 campaign because, for once, the solution is simple and available now.”

She isn't joking about how simple it is. Watch the video (above) to find out how!

Filed under: Science!Cancer

This seems like something out of a comic book, but this is for real!

Kim Suozzi is a 23-year-old woman who has an aggressive brain cancer called Glioblastoma multiforme.

She was very interested in science fiction and the brain and even was considering cryopreservation even before her cancer diagnosis!

The hope is that once preserved, after years and years go by and future doctors and scientists discover a cure for cancer and learn how to reanimate frozen people, she'd be brought back!

As if Russell Brand needed any more reasons to love David Beckham!

We previously mentioned that Russell said he would love to eat food off of Beckham's "godly" body.

Now Russell has even more of a man crush on Becks for helping him out with his chronic back pains.

Brand has apparently been suffering back pain while standing for some time now, which is a real issue if your job is "stand up" comedian!

So Becks lent him his personal masseuse to help Brand out… and it apparently cured him of his back pain!

A friend of Russell's said:

We're talking moving objects with your mind, because mentally controlling artificial limbs and mobility devices would be a big step forward toward more independent living.

Here's what one researcher said:
