Dickson Oppong was born on an unspecified date in the year 1967 in the West African country of Ghana.
Much of his early life is pretty much unknown. Other than the fact that he hails from an established performing arts family, and he used to accompany his dad to market places in his home nation to conduct shows.
It is in these appearances that he honed his prowess and ultimately got the attention of the Western world.
Besides his exceptional juggling abilities, what brought Dickson Oppong to the international limelight is like earlier stated his supernatural ability to safely chug down more water than anyone else on the globe can.
As well as his breathtaking capability to spit it all out before any damage is done to his system.
What Is His Superpower?
As healthcare professionals assert, this man’s case completely baffles them.
According to well proven medical facts , drinking an excessive amount of water within a short period of time is almost always fatal.
This is due to the inability of the human kidneys to flush out the extra water in a fast enough manner.
So this water usually finds its way to the bloodstream, which it then dilutes.
Drinking excesses of water can trigger a deadly medical condition that is known as hyponatremia.
If this for any reason does not occur, the excess water still causes damage my making its way to other regions of the body like the cells, which have high concentrations of salts and other dissolved substances.
As any biology student would be able to tell you the body’s cells are cushioned with fat deposits and muscles, which enables them to take up high amounts of fluids without bursting.
This isn’t the case with the cells that are found in the brain, where there is no sufficient space for them to expand.
This chain of events usually leads to the excessive water finding itself in the brain triggering edema that is in most cases fatal.
Well, to cut a long story short, this just isn’t the case with Dickson Oppong who time and again defies this well-entrenched medical reasoning.
His one of a kind stomach is in a position to hold 4.5 Liters of water, while that of the average individual can only hold 1 Liter.
This isn’t all he can do. By controlling, his stomach, Dickson Oppong also has the fascinating ability to spit out all the water he has ingested in a singular “fire hydrant” fashion.
Hence the epithet; Human Hydrant.
