A new craze sweeping the internet has seen people snort entire condoms through their nostrils - before pulling them out through their mouths.

Health experts have urged teens not to take part because the rubber could potentially get caught in a person's airway and block their ability to breathe.

It's a game called the "condom-snorting challenge" and, not unlike other unsafe dares that have swept social media, teenagers have been doing it - for years now.

David Warner loses LG Sponsorship After Being Banned by Cricket Australia
He said, "To all of my teammates, to fans of cricket all over the world and to all Australians who are disappointed and angry". Warner also broke his silence Thursday, apologising and accepting his role in the cheating storm.

"Because these days our teens are doing everything for likes, views, and subscribers", one educator told News 4 San Antonio. Bruce Y. Lee, a contributor to Forbes and Associate Professor of International Health at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, explains that the only thing that should go up your nose is air - and the occasional medicine. Not only is it an immediate choking hazard, but condoms can also get stuck and cause more long-term damage. Another woman accidentally swallowed the condom and it blocked her appendix, leading to appendicitis. It resulted in appendicitis, a condition which is typically caused when a blockage in the appendix's lining leads to infection, causing the organ to swell, according to the Mayo Clinic.

Much like people know in their hearts that they shouldn't eat Tide Pods or inhale copious amounts of cinnamon, people must realize that snorting condoms is a bad idea.

The challenge involves placing a Tide detergent pod in one's mouth and uploading the video to YouTube or other social media channels. That would be as foolish as, well, trying to inhale a condom.
