Selfies have some pretty undesirable side effects as it is (see: the duck face), but this news makes us regard the whole practice with a little more nausea. Put down your breakfast and listen up: these self-indulgent pics could be spreading lice.
According to Carrie Madej, owner of the local Nit Free Noggins treatment centers, "there's a definite increase in head lice among teenagers." Because kids typically lean their heads together and hold the camera out to snap selfies—and lice infestations occur from head-to-head contact—"selfies could definitely be the culprit," she said. Our head itches just thinking about it.
