By pushing science to its furthest, most marvelous extremes, "The X-Files" has captivated us with stories more strange and surreal than we'd ever dreamed possible. But are they as far-fetched as they look? With the help of leading experts, scientist Jeanne Cavelos explores the scientific theories--and supporting research--that shed light on some of the series' most bizarre and compelling episodes.Includes scientific examinations of: Could a man cause fungi to destroy everything he touched? How could a man made entirely of cancer cells grow back his decapitated head? What sort of nutrition could be derived from a diet of human livers? Could a man burn up in the sun--simply because he believes he's a vampire? How could a salamander hand grow on a man's body? Could concentrated human pheromones really make Scully do "the wild thing" with a stranger? Delve into the truth behind "The X-Files"--and wonders of science will never look the same again...
