Man Turns Green from Eating Too Many Snails

It's not easy being green. An unnamed 24-year-old man from Zhejiang Province, China, was hospitalized because he was turning green.

He began to complain of severe abdominal pain about two months ago, but did not seek medical attention until his body started to show some very strange symptoms.

His skin and the whites of his eyes began to turn green.

Concerned, he visited several hospitals in the province of Zhejiang, but he was not be properly diagnosed until he admitted himself into the Guizhou Aerospace Hospital in Guizhou.

"I was afraid of my own reflection, I looked like The Incredible Hulk," the young man said.

Doctors finally diagnosed the man with an infection caused by parasitic river worms that attacked his liver, which he had ingested with river snails. He admitted that he had been eating a bowl of fried snails every night. Link  -via Fortean Times
