Rob Gronkowski steers people away from latest social media eating challenge

A potentially deadly new trend is sweeping social media - and parents are being warned to be on the lookout.

.

Yes, there really is a new teen fad known as the "Tide Pod Challenge", which involves eating the colorful, plastic-wrapped packets of laundry detergent.

Because the pods look like candy, there is a real danger of young kids or older people with dementia mistaking the pods for candy and eating them but the people in these videos know what they're eating and are just doing it because they're idiots who want to go viral. The most recent, uploaded today, has already been viewed close to 12,000 times.

If you thought that the "Ice bucket challenge", "Mannequin challenge" and the "Invisible Box challenge" were way out off rails, take a moment to discover the brand-new craze that has inundated social media.

Rob Gronkowski steers people away from latest social media eating challenge

Eight deaths as a result of eating detergent pods were reported from 2012 to early 2017 in the U.S., involving six adults suffering from dementia and two children.

The video, just one of hundreds, is both foolish and disgusting - in addition to risky - and doctors are urging people to refrain from attempting the challenge. A disturbing number of teenagers have been posting videos of themselves accepting the challenge and trying out the pods, which are extremely toxic and absolutely not meant to be consumed. In extreme cases, consumption can be "life-threatening". "Use Tide pods for washing".

"They should not be played with, whatever the circumstance is, even if it is meant as a joke".
