A company by the name of Vaev is now selling USED TISSUES claiming it will help prepare you for the flu season and they're $80-A-BOX.
Let me start by saying I'm not by any means a doctor or even medically trained however this just seems like the dumbest idea (in the world of medicine) that I've ever seen.
This company by the name of Vaev just started selling USED tissues... These tissues are already infested with GERMS. Not sure if that means someone actually sneezed in it, wiped their nose, and then boxed it but that's the graphic and disgusting picture I get in my head....
The company claims that using these tissues helps build up your immune system to get you ready for flu season . . . OR let you DECIDE when you're going to intentionally give yourself the flu to get it out of the way.
Anyway, before you drop $80, just know that doctors are NOT on board. One doctor in Akron, Ohio says, quote, "That's bizarre. This seems like a total waste of money."
And one in Nashville says, quote, "This is potentially hazardous if it does work, and I don't think that it does." I really hope this product is fake and this is all just a stunt.
DUH!! We actively avoid sick people at work or at home. Matter fact I just slept on my couch for over a week because I quarantined by girlfriend who has some weird cold
