Remember when it was cool and trendy to eat poisonous Tide Pods and try to see if… you know, didn’t die?
Well, let me introduce you to the next ridiculous challenge you’ll ever hear…
Coating your chicken with large amounts of NyQuil.
Yeah, we’re just out here using cold and flu medicine as seasoning now.
Of course, according to the New York Post, the FDA is saying that this could result in some very dangerous outcomes.
“Boiling a medication can make it much more concentrated and change its properties in other ways.
It could also hurt your lungs. Put simply: Someone could take a dangerously high amount of the cough and cold medicine without even realizing it.”
Although the new dangerous trend has been online for a few months now, people are wondering why the FDA is just now addressing the issue.
More than likely, people are probably already suffering from the consequences of this absurd challenge, but who really knows.
Overdosing on NyQuil can result in seizures, severe dizziness, liver problems, breathing problems, and could potentially be fatal.
Dr. Aaron Hartman, a physician and assistant clinical professor of family medicine at Virginia Commonwealth University, explained:
“If you ate one of those cutlets completely cooked, it’d be as if you’re actually consuming a quarter to half a bottle of NyQuil.
When you cook cough medicine like NyQuil, you boil off the water and alcohol in it, leaving the chicken saturated with a super-concentrated amount of drugs in the meat.”
