There is a new teen challenge making the rounds, this one is called "Shell On" Challenge.
This challenge encourages teens to eat things still in its packaging.
For example, eat the banana by biting through the peel, or eating through the packaging of Hostess, Lil Debbie or Tastycakes including chewing AND swallowing the plastic packaging.
This means teens are consuming plastic and posting to YouTube, Instagram and Snapchat. Doctors are warning teens not to participate in this challenge. Fruit rinds are typically not dangerous. Eating plastic is another story. BPA has been suggested to influence hormones. Chemicals in PVC like vinyl chloride have been linked to cancers.
