Praise for The Mystery of the Exploding Teeth
“Replete with tales such as ”the human pincushion“ and ”suffocated by a fish,“ The Mystery of the Exploding Teeth is a bewildering walk through medical history that will astonish readers. This book proves that truth is indeed stranger—and more stomach-churning—than fiction. Between the toasting forks projectiles and deadly dentures, there are lessons a-plenty on how not to die.”—Lydia Kang, MD, author of Quackery
