Tаnzanian With Albinism Gets New Arms

Persons with аlbinism, like 28-year-old single mother Mariamu Staford, are being hunted down and murdered; their bodies sold on the black market and used in witchdoctor potions, all because of a superstitious belief that the limbs of albinos possess special powers. Nearly 60 albinos have been murdered in the last three years. Both of Staford’s arms were chopped off in the vicious attack, which left her unable to feed or clothe herself, or care for her young son. Staford comes to the United States with help from ABC News and gets fitted for a custom set of prosthetic limbs.

They also discovered that preventively removing both a Fallopian tube and an ovary — a procedure called a salpingo-oophorectomy — lowered the risk of ovarian cancer, the risk of breast cancer in women who were never diagnosed with it before.
