I love Bear Grylls in Man vs. Wild… as entertainment. How accurate is his information when it comes to medicine and health though? I decided to look back at some of Bear’s more jarring moments over the years and see whether he is spreading useful tips or misinformation. We took a look at a ton of “interesting” stuff today, such as Bear drinking urine, drinking liquids from all sorts of animals, natural sunscreen, bee stings, anaphylactic shock, eating bugs, swimming in a frozen lake, eating placenta with Shaq, fighting jellyfish with Mel B from Spice Girls, and so much more. Let me know if there are any Bear moments I missed you’d like me to react to in the future!

I LOVE reading your comments and take your suggestions seriously. If there’s a subject you want me to discuss or something you’d like for me to react to, leave a comment down below. Many of my videos have been born out of suggestions directly from you, so don’t hold back!
