Apparently there's more to VAL KILMER'S recent hospitalization than he let on. He denied media reports that said he had a tumor in his throat and had to have emergency surgery after it started bleeding. Kilmer said he was just in the hospital for observation, but TMZ reports that the family believes he's killing himself by relying solely on his Christian Science beliefs in prayer as the only treatment. Family members say Kilmer has known about the tumor since last summer and has had trouble speaking and his neck swelled to the point he covered it up with scarves and other clothing items. The family also says Kilmer would never admit to being in pain because it would be an admission that prayer didn't work. However, when he started coughing up blood last week he had to be hospitalized.

Researchers had people stick their hands into extremely cold water and found that those who said 'ow' could hold their hand in the ice water for up to three-and-a-half minutes longer.
