Neti Pot Nightmare: The Truth About Alternative Nose Cleansing
According to a NYTines report, 3.8% of all home-based drownings are caused by neti pots. As a staunch believer in all statistics and web-based knowledge, I felt it was my duty to tell you all that these things are downright dangerous. As I type, my BF is in the bathroom using one. I can hear the gagging and gurgling sounds. Yes, I should be dialing 911, but instead, like Cassandra, I'm shouting into the cybervoid, trying to save you from yourselves. Stop pouring saline or herbal tea into your sinuses. It's just gross and wrong. And DEADLY!! You have been warned.
