Selfies are not only the vainest of photos, but now everyone is being punished for taking them too!
That's right - putting your head up against your friend's head to duck face your way through Instagram is linked to the transferring of LICE!
TONS of teens are getting head lice because of selfies!
Lice is usually found in elementary-aged kids, but lice expert Marcy McQuillan has seen a “huge increase” in lice cases in teens!
Here's what she said:
“Typically it’s younger children I treat, because they’re at higher risk for head-to-head contact. But now, teens are sticking their heads together every day to take cell phone pics."
Here's the worst news:
"Every teen I've treated, I ask about selfies, and they admit that they are taking them every day…I think parents need to be aware, and teenagers need to be aware too. Selfies are fun, but the consequences are real."
Every day??? Nobody wants to see that shizz!
Please stop taking selfies. For everybody's sake.
