|SCIENTISTS are baffled after a Russian ghost town and a nearby village have suffered a 'sleep epidemic' where locals have been falling asleep for up to six days on end. |
The locals of Kalachi village in Kazakhstan and the almost abandoned Soviet town of Krasnogorsk, Russia have been suddenly falling asleep, and then waking up with no recollection of what happened.
More than 7,000 experiments into the soil, air, water and patient's blood, hair and nails have been carried out by scientists in these remote villages.
But so far, all results have come back inconclusive - although scientists fear leaking uranium could be to blame.
