Snorting entire condom through the nose and bringing it out from the mouth, the latest disturbing trend 'condom challenge'


Health Officials have discovered a growing bizarre trend on social media and it's very disturbing.
It's called the 'Condom Challenge' which involves inhaling an unwrapped condom through one's nostril and pulling it out of the throat through the mouth.
According to Mail Online, the challenge has been around for several years but is reportedly making a comeback on the heels of the Tide Pod Challenge that made headlines earlier this year.




Experts are now warning that snorting condoms pose a serious choking risk but could also lead to infection.
They are urging people to stop partaking in the sickening trend because the rubber could get stuck in the airway and block their ability to breathe.
A research carried out shows that the spermicidal lubricant found on most condoms can also irritate the inner lining of the nose and cause allergic reaction or infection.
While accidentally swallowing the condom could also lead to serious complications.
Bruce Lee, an associated professor at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, addressed the trend in an opinion piece for Forbes posted Saturday.
He said: 'When is using a condom a bad idea? When you are trying to snort it up your nose and pull it out through your mouth,' he wrote.
'Even if you manage to successfully pull the condom out through your mouth, inhaling a condom up your nose would be very uncomfortable and potentially quite painful.
'Would it really be worth all that just to get more likes and views?'

'He kicked me in the stomach, I peed on myself. He body-slammed me to the floor twice and told me he would kill me, no one will find my body.: In her journey to recovery, domestic violence survivor Christine R. M. Dennis-Freeman tells it all

The tragic story of Christine R. M. Dennis-Freeman, like that of Agnes Yarlee and Diane Hart before her, has brought the issue of domestic abuse out of the dark unspoken place it thrives and into the open.
It's horrendous that it takes the death of women, or an attempt to kill women, to get a serious debate  on the issue of domestic abuse. Discussing domestic violence in our society is a real taboo and most men within the Liberian society, don't even find the topic worth their time, as compared to discussing sports, politics and corruption. 
But these women mention above are just the tip of the iceberg.


Defying the odds, Mrs. Dennis-Freeman refuses to keep her mouth shut and go with the flow of the Liberian society.  She courageously sat in a wheel chair up to 1:30am, sharing her story with C Liberia Clearly.  In her own words, she walked us through the day that led to her horrific story.

“The people of Helena have spoken, and I am honored to be able to serve them,” Collins said as the night drew to a close. “I intend to work with commissioners, work for the people of Helena and find what is best for this city.”Collins also sought to praise Smith for his work over the past decade and a half.
“I commend Mayor Smith. He’s done a great job for the city, and I hope to work with him in the future," Collins said. 
At the La Pa Grill on 6th Avenue in downtown Helena, Collins and other members of the self-described “progressive ticket” watched and waited for the results of the 2017 election.
The feeling was festive as Collins received a call from U.S. Sen. Jon Tester congratulating Collins on his victory. Victory cigars were passed around the room at the …
