Doctors Warn About Dangers of Teen ‘Condom Challenge’ [VIDEO]
Condoms are 98% effective when used properly. Snorting them, however, is not considered 'proper use.' Doctors are warning about the dangers of the latest teen challenge which involves snorting a condom into the nose, and pulling it out through the mouth?
The condom challenge isn't new. Teens have been recording themselves doing this since 2007, and it's made a comeback recently since the (Oh EM Gee) popularity of the Tide Pod challenge.
Hurley's Doctor Herman Gomez tells WJRT that the chemicals inside condoms can be very dangerous ... when applied to the wrong parts.
"The spermicide, or chemical substance, gets left within; and, maybe, either ingested or swallowed or aspirated into the lungs, killing cells and therefore causing damage," he said.
Honestly, what the hell will kids think of next? Wait. I don't want to know.
