Well, this is a complicated and upsetting story.

Billy is alleging that Vince McMahon's company put wrestlers in danger by hiding important medical information and encouraging steroid and cocaine use.
What's even crazier is that

We all know that One Direction's heartthrob Harry Styles loves his tattoos, but could the boy band crooner be causing some serious damage???
While Styles has had most of his tattoos done professionally — as we've seen him spotted at tattoo parlors — it sounds like he's also been putting his health on the line!
Reportedly, Harry's been having his friend tatt him up with cheap DIY kits, which could leave him susceptible to infections like hepatitis and TB!
It even sounds like Harry's tattoo artist, Kevin Paul, has tried to tell him to stop and has even warned him of these dangers, but he has chosen not to listen!
Oh man… that doesn't sound good! While tatts may look cool, there's definitely some health risks that go along with them!
We hope Harry wises up and quits the homemade ink sessions!

Giorgio Armani must have stock in oil because his chest was shine-tastic in WSJ magazine.
The photo (above), was taken of the "King of Italy" back in 2008, and we gotta say his slick bod was lookin' faboosh for a 73 year old.
Unfortunately, it's been a rough couple years for the designer. In the article, it's revealed that taking too many "supplements" was the cause of contracting hepatitis back in 2009.
"Armani won't say exactly what he was taking, only that the substance poisoned his liver."
His doctor has since ordered him to stop taking the pills.
Well, he must be doing something right because the silver Italian fox is looking great!

Eww! This is just INSANELY disgusting!
Instead of trusting vaccines to prevent their children from contracting diseases like Chickenpox and the Measles, some parents are purchasing lollipops online which were licked by other infected kids.
Why? To keep their offspring safe, of course!
A Facebook group called "Find a Pox Party in Your Area" is allowing parents to meet other parents with sick kids so they can swap spit — literally!
One posting from a Wendy Werkit of Nashville, Tenessee offered other group members a "fresh batch of pox in Nashville shipping of suckers, spit and Q-tips available tomorrow 50 dollars via PayPal."
The woman explained herself to a local news broadcast, saying:

The body of Christ was so pure at a Catholic church in Long Island on Christmas day, and was potentially infected with hepatitis A.
The church has yet to reveal the source of the virus, but did say that people who attended church at 10:30 AM and noon at Our Lady of Lourdes church could have been exposed to the virus.
Mary Ellen Laurain, a spokeswoman for the Nassau County Department of Health, said that "a person involved in the Communion process has tested positive for hepatitis A."
"We feel the transmission [level] is low. And to protect the public from potential illness, those who received Holy Communion on Dec. 25 should receive prophylactic treatment."
Fortunately, hepatitis A isn’t as dangerous as B or C, so anyone who was potentially infected simply needs to seek out a doctor and get tested.
Churches might need to ramp up their sanitation methods!
