Exfoliating fish?



I"m thinking blee, serious fucking blee.
From boing boing.

"Garra Rufa, a type of small tropical fish, also nicknamed Chinchin Yu, nibble fish or simply doctor fish, are put in hot springs. As they can live and swim freely in at least 43-degree-hot waters, they are naturally used for the treatment of skin diseases in such spas. When placed in the spa, these fish can feed themselves on the dead cells of the human body, since they only consume such cells, leaving the healthy skin of the human body to grow. The whole process is reportedly free of pain. It won't hurt and the bather might feel a pleasant tingling on his or her skin."

No really, bleeeeeee. Why can't folk just use loofahs? Or soap. Soap is good.

Is it just me, or aren't these people aware that someone has already invented exfoliants?

Many large mammals allow birds pick the Ticks off them. Water Buffalo are a classic example.

Some strains of Sparrow pluck up Ants and insert them into their plumage. The Ants kill the Ticks and in the process coat the bird's feathers with a substance poisonous to Ticks that prevents further infestation for a while.

Sharks and some Whales seek out certain fish species to pick off dead skin and scales.

Humans eat yoghurt with added bacteria (L. Casei Immunitas and Bifidus Digestivum) to enhance the digestive powers of the stomach flora.

We used use leeches to extract blood. Although that practice has ceased, leeches are still an excellent way of removing poison, infection or white blood cells from small areas - more effective than medication or minor surgery.

Even a dog's lick has antiseptic properties.

I could go on, but you'd be bleeeeeing 'til the cows come home, FMC.

I say, bring on the fish and to hell with the expense of the K-Spa.

But Sneezy, I know what you're saying, but we have showers and baths and loofahs and..well, all manner of things that do those jobs we need to do. Why fish? dear lord, why fish?

after a long hot run/ride/brick, i often plop in the nearby stream. it's not an ice bath, but it's sumthin. i can sit for as long as it takes the leetle fish to gather the nurve to start nibbling at me, and then i get out. it is not a pleasant experience IMO. not my bag.

Finn is it just some random stream in the middle of nowhere?
