When I was getting ready for school I was watching the News are I saw the videos of teens drinking hand sanitizer to get drunk. I was disgusted, I really don`t make posts like this but i wanted to share this with all of you so you don`t make that mistake..All these teens recorded themselfs drinking it. Why would someone do that?
The six California teens arrived in the emergency rooms with slurred speech and burning sensations in their stomachs. Some of them were so drunk that they needed to be monitored, CBS News reported.
"It is kind of scary that they go to that extent to get a shot of essentially hard liquor," Rangan pointed out.
Dr. Robert Glatter, an emergency medicine physician at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City, told CBS News that he`s seen something similar, when a few teenagers ingested hand sanitizer as a "dare."
"They denied drinking any `alcohol`, had no smell of alcohol on their breath, but when their blood alcohol was quite elevated, they later admitted to drinking the hand sanitizer," Glatter said.
Concerned parents should consider monitoring their kids` use of alcohol-based hand sanitizers, buying foam-based ones that are more difficult to distill or drink as-is, or using non-alcohol versions instead.
