A warning about kids and metal water bottles

Thursday, January 10, 2013

I read this today from a link on facebook and thought it worth sharing. This is a story that was on TODAY news show.

Apparently some kids stick their tongues into a metal water bottle and because the bottle isn't flexible, like plastic, it creates a suction that can actually cause the tongue to get stuck and cause severe problems resulting in medical intervention necessary to get the tongue out. The girl in the story had to have surgery to get it removed. When it gets stuck, then the tongue swells and causes even more difficulties getting it out.

I personally don't like to drink from metal because I don't like the taste, but have had a couple given to me in the past. I don't want my grandkids to use them now. It may not happen most of the time, but still it's scary to think about. Just thought I'd pass it on because who would ever think of this?

Have a great day.
