Consider this fair warning for the bubble tea-obsessed.

A 14-year-old girl in China landed herself in hospital, after not being able to move her bowels for five days.

The girl, who lived in Zhejiang province, complained of being constipated, not being able to eat, and was suffering from stomachaches. According to Chinese media reports, her parents finally sent her to the hospital on May 28.

Unable to find the cause of her digestive issues, a CT scan was performed, where doctors found many unusual spherical shadows in her abdomen.

Doctors deduced that the shadows were actually around a hundred undigested tapioca pearls from bubble tea she had consumed.

Initially reluctant to reveal what she ate, the girl finally spilled the beans, but insisted that she only drank a cup of bubble tea five days before this incident.

However, Doctor Zhang Louzhen, who treated her, suspected that she may have been hiding the truth for fear of punishment from her parents. He said it would take ingesting a significant amount of pearls for an extended period of time for her condition to be this severe.

The girl was prescribed some laxatives to relieve her of constipation.

Another doctor interviewed also issued a warning that bubble tea pearls or boba, which are made out of starch, are actually hard for the body to digest.

In addition, some stores may add thickeners and preservatives to the pearls, and continuous consumption of such ingredients can lead to gastro-intestinal dysfunction.

As they say, all things in moderation.

“Blowing Smoke Up Your Ass” Was Much More Than Just A Saying. In 18th-century England, blowing smoke up one’s ass was an actual medical procedure. One of the earliest reports of such a practice took place in England in 1746, when a woman was left unconscious after nearly drowning. [2]
Her husband allegedly took the suggestion of administering a tobacco enema to revive her, a practice that was rising in popularity at the time as a possible answer to the frequent, local instances of drowning.
Left with little choice, the man took a tobacco-filled pipe, inserted the stem into his wife’s rectum, and, well, blew a bunch of smoke up there. As strange as it may sound today, it reportedly worked, the hot embers of the tobacco leaf jolting the wife back into consciousness, and the practice grew quickly from there.
The method of treating with a tobacco smoke enema was adopted from North American Indians. Digestion problems, somnolence, stomach cramps, and parasites were all treated with a tobacco smoke enema.


"The churning inside me never stops; days of suffering confront me." (Job 30:27).
