There Is A Town The Antarctica That Requires All Residents To Remove Their Appendix To Live There


In the Antarctic town of Villas Las Estrellas all residents are required to literally have their appendix removed before settling there.

An appendectomy is a prerequisite for everyone (including children).

The outpost only allows 100 inhabitants max, mostly researchers and military personnel.

The nearest hospital is over 600 miles away.

Temperatures can drop below -100 degrees Fahrenheit.

Dogs are banned on the island to prevent them from transmitting diseases.
