Apparently teens are eating Tide Pods? Enough so that The SciShow created a video about it.
In the first 3 weeks of 2018 at least 86 American teens have gotten sick enough to alert poison control.
I wasn’t going to post about the Tide Pod issue itself. I just wanted to get to the following Reddit bit – but found the Sci-Show post, which happens to be a really interesting lesson on a really stupid behavior. You’d think that “don’t eat laundry detergent” would be enough, but if side effects like “vomiting blood and seizures” doesn’t change your mind… *shrug*
Anyways, onto the original post – Reddit has a /r/forbiddensnacks subthread that is laughable. Check it out.
