Ever wondered how it feels to remove a part of your body to live in your own village? Quite strange!! In a virtual world where we are living in today we occasionally comes across viral Kidney jokes through social media memes. But what if it is actually true?
The village named as 'Vilas las Estrellas' located on the continent of Antarctica and this village lacks basic facilities. However, general stores, banks, schools, small post offices, and hospitals have been made according to the need. Children do get basic education in schools, but the treatment in hospitals is very superficial. The large hospital in Antarctica, which is known for good treatment is located one thousand kilometres away from Vilas Las Estrellas village. In such a situation, if someone feels pain in the appendix in Vilas Las Estrelas, there is a fear of being killed.
For these reasons, the appendix need to be removed considering them to be non-essential organs. This part of the Antarctica continent is mainly occupied by scientists for research purposes or Chilean Air Force and Army troops. For soldiers coming with family, special care is taken that people coming and living here should be completely healthy and there will not be any emergency-like situation. It is also instructed in the military base that their wife should not be pregnant because any major problem can arise due to lack of medical facilities.
This village is densely populated and is covered with snow throughout the year. To get here one has to use trucks or rafting boats. It also does not have public transport facilities. Though the continent remain in minus degree, this area is very hot.
