This disease is caused by food poisoning and causes muscles to lock and degenerate. David was placed in an induced coma for four months with assisted breathing, as his muscles were not letting him breathe naturally.

His children could not see him during this time and several months later he regained his walking abilities. David looks forward to spending Christmas with his family.

Swedish hospitals serve its patients a meal of chicken curry, rice, vegetables, an orange, and a glass of water.



This is considered a balanced meal as none of it is too rich or unhealthy for those recovering from various diseases.
