Meteorologist Reveals Why People Shouldn't Be Eating Icicles

Meteorologist Reveals Why People Shouldn't Be Eating Icicles

Just like they tell you not to eat yellow snow, it turns out you should also probably avoid sucking on icicles, too. Sure they might seem fun and refreshing, but according to meteorologist Katie Nickolaou, you will seriously regret it once you find out what could be hiding inside the icy goodness.

So what's so bad about them? Well, they're packed full of poo. Bird poo.

After seeing a series of videos online of people chowing down on icicles, Katie decided to warn her followers about the dangers of eating frozen rain water that's run off their roofs.

In a video she posted to Twitter, the concerned scientist said: "Please don't do that. I'm a meteorologist, I should know.

"When icicles form, it's from water that melts off of your roof and runs down the side of a building.

"Well, here's the thing. You know what else is on your roof? Bird poo, a lot of it, and that water picks it up and freezes it in the ice. You're eating poop."

So there you have it. If you really want an icy treat, just go to the shop and buy an ice lolly or go suck on some ice out of your freezer.

And while we're on the subject, another thing people should apparently avoid doing is putting ice lollies up their vaginas.

I'm not sure why people need to be told this, but it would seem they do.

NHS Doctor Explains Why You Shouldn't Make Your Bed In The Morning

Speaking to Metro, Dr Sarah Welsh, the co-founder of HANX, a condom brand, said women should stop trying to use lollies to cool themselves down in the hot weather.

She said: "The vagina is composed of very delicate and sensitive skin, hence, things that may seem innocent to other areas of the body, if they come in contact with the vagina, can cause infections, irritations and damage.

"There are many things that should never go near a vagina, and ice lollies are up there. The ice can stick to the delicate skin of the vagina and cause real trauma and damage.

"What's more, putting any foodstuff inside your vagina can introduce microbes, disrupting its normal balance and allowing an environment for bacteria to grow and infections to develop."

Rather than inserting anything into your body, food or otherwise, Dr Welsh had a couple of other less invasive tips to keep cool.

She explained: "My advice would be to avoid any foreign bodies in the vagina for risk of infection.

"I would suggest loose cotton underwear and avoiding tight clothing to prevent any irritation and dermatitis developing.

"A cool shower (without internal douching) and keeping well hydrated should suffice."
