Here are two stories that were sent to me via email.
Case 1:
A little boy died because surgeons found ants in his brain! Apparently this boy had fell asleep with some sweets in his mouth or with some sweet stuff beside him. Ants soon got to him and some ants in fact crawled into his ear which somehow managed to go to his brain. When he woke up, he did not realize that ants had gone to his head.
After that, he constantly complains about itchiness around his face. His mother brought him to see a doctor but the doctor could not figure out what was wrong with him. He took an X-ray of the boy and to his horror, he found a group of live ants in his skull. Since the ants are still live, the doctor could not operate on him cuz the ants are constantly moving about.

The boy at last died. So please be careful when leaving food stuff beside your bed or when eating in bed. This might attract ants. Most importantly, NEVER eat a sweet before going to bed. You might fall asleep and suffer same fate as the little boy.

Case 2:
Another similar incident happened in the hospital in Taiwan. This man was warded in the hospital and was constantly warned by the nurses not to leave food stuff by his bedside for there are ants about. He did not head their advice. Ants finally got to him. His family members said that the man constantly complain about headaches. He died and a post mortem or autopsy was done on him. Doctors found a group of live ants in his head. Apparently, the ants had been eating bits of his brain.

Ughhhhhhh! So dear friends, better be safe than sorry! Never leave food stuff beside your side when you go to sleep!

The two cases of ants entering the human brain are big hoaxes! These stories are both fiction and classic urban legends. There are no documented cases of ants entering the brain, more so, living there.

I do not think this is possible. Ants, especially the ones that we know around that feed on sugary foods cannot survive in neutral fluid like water, not to talk of body fluids.

Try It when you get home. Drop an ant in half glass of water, I bet you it will die in less than 10mins. It is ridiculous to think that an ant will survive inside the human body

for that long and even be able to move around.

O level Biology teaches us that insects (ants inclusive) breathe. They take in Atmospheric oxygen, remember tracheae & tracheoles used for respiration?

How were they respiring? The human body carries oxygen in the blood, and cells and not in interstitial fluids (fluids outside the blood), the ants could not have entered cells or blood

What caused the death of the child, were the ants eating the child’s brain? I thought that they were sugar ants.

We can go on and analyze the possibility one after the other, you will find out it’s just nonsense. They should go and sleep.

The other day they said someone contracted AIDS by eating pineapple, tomorrow they will say don’t buy orange sold on traffic etc.

The people that originate this kind of mails should state their sources, and put their contact. They are capitalizing on people’s gullibility to distract and promote misinformation.
