Russia: Health agency warns selfies ‘spread head lice’

Hey, anything that stops Millennials from feeding their narcissistic, overinflated egos…

Young people should stop taking selfies in order to avoid catching head lice, a Russian government agency has advised.

The selfie craze, where people cram together to fit into an arms-length photo, is the main reason for the spread of the parasites, according to the Kursk regional department of Rospotrebnadzor, a government body which advises on human well-being. Taking photos in such close quarters with another person’s head means the lice can jump from one hairy home to another, it warns, noting that doctors have banned children with head lice from going to school.
