father from China’s northernmost province is using food to demystify a somewhat macabre profession. Wang Yexiao, a 32-year-old doctor from Hegang city in Heilongjiang province, has recorded videos of himself performing surgery on fruits to show how the procedures are done. “People think medicine is mysterious,” he told New Beijing News. “They don’t trust doctors too much when it comes to medical treatment. I want to change these perceptions.”
Additionally, Wang is using the videos to teach his two-year-old son about his job, who enjoys watching them. He isn’t the only one; most netizens on Weibo have responded positively, with comments ranging from “cool” to “cute” to “I don’t dare to go to the hospital after watching this!” Wang intends to make more videos showing how more common surgical procedures are performed, with fruit still the victim. Watch the video below.
