occupational hazard

Brazilian band given a high dose of X-ray for the sake of art (Special Sociological Song)

The best illustration of occupational hazard? Maybe this impressive video of the song Anormal by the Brazilian band Pato Fu: just a few musicians  playing in a studio – only they are given X-ray all throughout the recording session!

Ok, ok, I’ve been cheating a bit. Actually only their instruments have been scanned in a X-ray machine. The humans were just rendered with CGI. But, hey, I’m trying to make a point here, and maybe suggest this issue of the Health Sociology Review focussing on the impact of neo-liberal policies on workplace health

Anyhow, enjoy the song, and practice your portuguese with the lyrics.
