Apparently there’s been a spike in head lice among teens.  Experts say the reason for the increase is…’Selfies?’  To quote the the brains behind this research, “Teens are sticking their heads together every day to take cell phone pics and that’s spreading the lice.”  This so-called lice expert is Marcy McQuillan from Scott’s Valley, California and even she’s shocked that its becoming such a huge for teens, when typically this is something you hear about among younger children.

So moms and dads, make sure and warn your teen about the dangers of taking that next ‘Selfie’ with her bestie.
