A recent internet trend is sparking concern with local doctors.
Videos and memes are circulating social media around a laundry pod eating challenge. The Emergency Department at the Timmins and District Hospital is advising that you don’t take part in this challenge. Dr. Sonel Zilka says eating laundry detergent, especially concentrated pods, can be very harmful to your body.
Zilka says this is not something that should not be done by anybody.
There have been no cases related to this reported at the hospital at this moment.
