All the pollen floating around in the sticky summer air can do a real number on your asthma. If it’s too much for you to handle, why not head to Hyderabad, India, where you can swallow a live fish that has a secret herbal paste in its mouth?
Supposedly, there’s some kind of link between the live fish slithering down your throat, spewing the secret paste everywhere, and asthma relief. This treatment has been performed for about 100 years by the same family, and thousands of people show up every year for this bizarre event, claiming that it cures their asthma.
You vegetarians are out of luck. Oh, so is anyone who doesn’t want to swallow a live fish. We’ll stick to more run-of-the-mill asthma treatments for now – and wait until Oprah says the fish thing is okay.
