Under the heading "Vestigial organs" you have posted a photograph of a girl in Edwardian dress suffering from the disease polio. Having gone untreated with leg irons to slow what was the eventual contortion of her limbs and the ensuing disfigurement captured by the photographer, she is horribly crippled.

In another photograph, we see an elderly woman with a "cutaneous horn" on her forehead. Far from being a 'vestigial organ', it is a skin tumour (hopefully a benign one) as around 40% of them are cancerous.

'Vestigial organs' indeed!

Here's an idea: how about you actually read a few books to inform your subject knowledge before you contemplate writing any more of them?

Read about cutaneous horns here: [www.medicalnewstoday.com]

Read about polio (and see similar photographs) here: [www.environewsnigeria.com]

I haven't the time or the inclination to comment on any of your other similarly ill-informed or made up nonsense.
