Ed Sheeran's A Tasty Ginger Inspiration! Sings For Patients At Seacrest Studios!

This is the type of celeb news we LOVE to write about!

The scrumptious ginger biscuit that is British singer/songwriter Ed Sheeran may be busy getting rollar coaster dizzy at Disney with Taylor Swift, but that doesn't mean dude doesn't have time for his fans…

Especially his fans who may need the healing power of music a little more than the rest of us.

Ed paid a visit to the Seacrest Studios at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta last week and sang, chatted and chilled with patients.

Ch-ch-check out the inspiring event (above)!

Ooo and we're so glad he chose to sing Lego House

Have you SEEN the full lego recreation of the tune's video?! Pretty effing epic.

Each year, 17,000 people receive a kidney transplant, but it's the number of people that don't receive one that is so astounding.

THAT number is about 17,000 people times FIVE, which is why news that scientists have made functioning rat kidneys at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston is SO amazing!!!!

When the kidneys were transplanted into rats - they effectively produced urine for the rodents!

We all know how terrifying antibiotic-resistant bacteria is. There's just no good way of fighting it, and it can lead to some seriously horrible things. The worst part is that the mutated bacteria is super easy to pick up — even at hospitals.
