We previously mentioned that Phillip Phillips finally got the surgery he needed.
He had huge kidney stones that were too large to pass via the pee pee method.
Well after the 6 and a half hour surgery he's feeling
Man, it's been forever! He must be so relieved.
American Idol winner Phillip Phillips has been suffering from HUGE kidney stones throughout pretty much all of the competition.
Now, after having all sorts of treatments to alleviate the stones, he's finally gotten the surgery he needed.
As we previously mentioned, Phillip Phillips had some pretty serious kidney issues and almost had to drop out of American Idol!
It's a good thing he didn't or else he wouldn't have won!
His doctors told him
It's important to eat your fruits and veggies but did U know that there are certain parts of them that could be toxic and cause some serious harm to you??
We don't want you to stop eating your favorite healthy foods, just be more careful when preparing them.
Here's a list of potential toxic foods to be careful around:
Yuca (A starchy root, that if eaten raw, can be highly toxic and even cause cyanide intoxication!)
Kidney Beans (Raw, they contain enough toxins to cause symptoms after eating only a few beans.)
Cheery Seeds (When crushed or chewed on, even a little, they release prussic acid, also known as hydrogen cyanide. Don't eat seeds.)
Green Potatoes (Green spots indicate the presence of a nerve toxin that can literally cause paralysis.)
Elderberry (Berries are fine; the leaves, stems and seeds aren't. You wouldn't eat them anyway, so don't start now.)
Apple Seeds (The seeds are literally poisonous. Don't eat them. Why would you anyway? They're terrible.)
Lima Beans (Same as kidney beans, don't eat these raw unless you enjoy being poisoned by only a handful of beans.)
Tomatoes (They're totally great. Except the leaves. They'll make you crazy nervous and turn your stomach over.)
Rhubarb (The plant is great, the leaves are dangerous. This seems like common sense. Don't eat leaves.)
Peach Pits (Full of cyanide. The hard shell would protect you from it should you swallow one. Even if you crack one and eat it, it's only enough to cause stomach upset.)
So stay away from the toxic parts of these awesome plants and you can keep eating your veggies without all those annoying side effects like cyanide poisoning!
Eva Longoria was recently at the 2012 George Lopez Celebrity Golf Classic at the Lakeside Golf Club in Toluca Lake, Cali.
She was looking good and had a surprisingly professional looking swing!
The whole event was a chart function and she was there supporting George Lopez's Lopez Foundation.
Their mission statement said:
Horrendous! What a complete lack of gratitude!
A woman named Debbie Stevens did something she totally didn't have to do: she donated a kidney so her boss, Jackie Brucia (pictured above), could move up a list for her own transplant.
As a thank you, Jackie then helped Debbie get a promotion and a raise!
JUST KIDDING, she then helped get Debbie fired.
Here's what Debbie had to say:
