Hand sanitizer is the latest trend
 in drinking for underage teens

Hand sanitizer is the latest trend in drinking for underage teens, worrying doctors after six young people were hospitalized with alcohol poisoning in California from drinking the antibacterial solution to get drunk.

Containing 62 percent ethyl alcohol, teens are using hand sanitizer as a quick way to get drunk, as the gel is the equivalent of a shot and a half of hard liquor. The trend has been evident on YouTube with teens posting video footage of chugging hand sanitizer cocktails.

According to the Los Angeles Times, teens used salt to distill the alcohol from the sanitizers with instructions easily found online, leaving a 120 proof shot stronger than most whiskeys and vodkas at 80 proof.

All it takes is just a few swallows and you have a drunk teenager, Dr. Cyrus Rangan of the Children's Hospital Los Angeles told the Los Angeles Times. There is no question that it is dangerous. It is kind of scary that they go to that extent to get a shot of essentially hard liquor.

As a mother, I felt disturbed and scared knowing how a simple bottle of hand sanitizer can ruin one’s life and can lead into destruction even death,  it is our responbility as parents to mold our kids, to guide them and take them to the right path, the world is full of rugrats we have to be prepared for the worst...
I don’t know if it is right to write something like this especially that most of my readers are from the middle east where liquors are strongly prohibited, after all this what blogging is all about, to share and be heard.
