Doctors warn for new trend VS: chocolate sniffing
- People who chew chocolate will endanger their health. For this reason, US doctors warn. More and more people take a pinch of chocolate to reach a kick, but they are taking big risks.
The thing in question is called Coco Loko, a powder that consists largely of chocolate. The product can be ordered easily online, but it is not officially approved. On social media, more and more people have been shooting more videos of people who take the stuff.
According to doctors, Coco Loko can greatly increase the risk of asthma and bronchitis when it is sliced. According to Dr. Jordan S. Josephson of Lennox Hill Hospital, there are no long-term investigations into the dangers of chocolate but there are risks.
At CBS New York, Josephson explains that the chocolate powder for children is even more dangerous. This because they have smaller noses. 'The stuff can then get stuck easier. '
The doctor attacks chocolate in the traditional way: by eating it so. Legal Lean, the makers of Coco Loko, has not responded yet.
