People that look different are often ridiculed or ostracised by society. The conditions you are about to see are either due to genes are just slightly odd habits.

The Man With Zero Percent Fat


Tom Staniford lives with Myelodysplastic (MPD) syndrome, a condition in which his body is unable to store fat under his skin.


MPD is an extremely rare metabolic disorder, which is currently know to affect only eight people in the world.


People with MPD all share the ‘no fat whatsoever’ characteristics, which include the appearance of sunken eyes, cheeks, and withered lips.



In spite of his wasted frame Stanifords body thinks that he is obese, meaning he has type 2 diabetes. Staniford has not let the condition get the better of him, and was crowned British National Paracycling Champion in 2011.
