Truphena recorded her first segment at McGill’s Freaky Fridays, a series dedicated to busting scientific myths. Dr. Murray Humphries talked about blood suckers and the animals that feed upon us.

Humphries also talked about human bloodsuckers, like the Maasai tribe in Kenya who mix livestock blood with milk for protein.
