Viral Tide Pod Challenge Comes with Risks

This should be obvious to some... for others, it's all about the social media views

There have been many types of challenges over the years like the ice bucket challenge, cinnamon challenge, bath salt challenge, just to name a few. Now, there's the Tide Pod challenge where you guessed it, people bite into and sometimes EAT the Tide detergent packets (you know, the packets that were meant for doing your laundry).

It's easy to see why these colorful, squishy, and scented pods are attractive to young children. But here's the thing... they're TOXIC! Symptoms include breathing difficulties, vomiting, loss of consciousness, and change in blood pressure and heart rate. 

According to the American Association of Poison Control Centers, there have been reports of over 10,500 children who were admitted to poison control centers in 2017. 

Why would anyone risk their own life for a "dare"? Eating Tide Pods are a BAD IDEA.
