Cutting Edge INNERtainment

Science and Swords
Science on the Cutting Edge

You flip on the TV.   Sure, you've seen them before, but there's something about press conferences you find irresistible.  The throng of eager reporters, the normally reclusive scientist and medical technicians clad in impeccably pressed pure white lab coats, exhibiting an air of exuberance befitting their first public sighting in five years.  You're not sure what's up, but you can tell it's going to be big!

​Pan right.

An intruder. A middle-aged man smiles mischievously. He steps into the light. Though professional, the man's solid black outfit stands out in stark contrast to the scientific environment of sterile white.

He draws a 3-foot sword from its scabbard, tilts back his head, and plunges the length of the blade down his throat.

The scientists erupt in wild applause.

Science and swords may seem an odd pair. But without the contributions of sword swallowers, we may not have some of today's most critical diagnostic tools. Sword swallowers rigorously train themselves to ignore the body's natural gag reflex, making them the perfect test subjects.
