The Internet is one thing of current era which has definitely reduced the distance between people. There are positive aspects of everything as well as the negative ones, it depends upon the user to decide between the two sides, he can either use the thing wisely or can manipulate it to get any negative result. The positive side of the internet is, ‘a reduction in communication gap’ but the negative comes in play when people start propagating negative information and simple people adapt that information to make serious opinions.
These challenges can be termed as one branch of this misinformation, people are getting influenced and they often fall prey to stupid internet challenges thinking it some kind of valour. How did we get this far? I don’t understand, first the ‘gallon challenge’ later the ‘cinnamon challenge’.
There are some teenagers who are playing the ‘bath-salt challenge.’ They kind of dare each other to pour salt into their hands and hold the ice until it burns, now this is the kind of misinformation which I am talking here in this article.
There are videos of people circulating on the social media where they are eating these colourful laundry detergent packets. People were seen even cooking these packs in frying pans, some even chewed them directly before spewing it out of their mouth.
There are several news websites which are warning people about this challenge, they are trying to make people aware that this challenge is dangerous.
You’re really taking a chance — and to what end? It’s pretty foolish behavior. – said the managing director of Florida Poison Information Center in Tampa
These laundry detergents must be kept out of the reach of the children. The ingestion can cause serious injuries and fatality. Must be kept away from the reach of impaired adults, there is the video breakdown of the entire incident, a boy eats 3 tide pods.
Warning: No laundry pods were consumed in the making of this video. The purpose of this video is to tell a story and educate. This is based on a true story occurring January 2018, USA.
