    This is... exactly what happened with Tide Pods. You have to hear about it to even consider trying it, so the more people hear about it (the more it's reported, even if you're being told *not* to do it), the more people will have the idea to try it.

    Heres the exact quote from the FDA'S site: One social media trend relying on peer pressure is online video clips of people misusing nonprescription medications and encouraging viewers to do so too. These video challenges, which often target youths, can harm people - and even cause death.
    Nonprescription (also called over-the-counter or OTC) drugs are readily available in many homes, making these challenges even more risky. OTC drugs can pose significant risks if they’re misused or abused.
    The Dangers of Social Media Challenges with Drugs
    A recent social media video challenge encourages people to cook chicken in NyQuil (acetaminophen, dextromethorphan, and doxylamine) or another similar OTC cough and cold medication, presumably to eat.
    The challenge sounds silly and unappetizing - and it is. But it could also be very unsafe. Boiling a medication can make it much more concentrated and change its properties in other ways. Even if you don’t eat the chicken, inhaling the medication’s vapors while cooking could cause high levels of the drugs to enter your body. It could also hurt your lungs. Put simply: Someone could take a dangerously high amount of the cough and cold medicine without even realizing it.
    An earlier TikTok challenge urged people to take large doses of the allergy medicine diphenhydramine (sold OTC in many products, including some under the brand name Benadryl) to try to induce hallucinations. Prompted by news reports of teenagers needing to go to the emergency room or, in some cases, dying after participating in this challenge and taking too much medication, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration warned the public about the danger of high doses of diphenhydramine.
    What You Can Do to Protect Your Children
    How can you keep your kids safe and help prevent potentially harmful trends? First, keep both OTC and prescription drugs away from children, and lock up these medications to prevent accidental overdose.
    Sit down with your children and discuss the dangers of misusing drugs and how social media trends can lead to real, sometimes irreversible, damage. Remind your children that overdoses can occur with OTC drugs as well as with prescription drugs.
    If you believe your child has taken too much medication and is hallucinating, can’t be awakened, has had or is having a seizure, has trouble breathing, has collapsed, or is showing other signs of drug misuse, call 911 to get immediate medical attention. Or contact poison control at 1-800-222-1222 or online.
    Use OTC Drugs Safely
    Social media challenge or not, it is important to use medications as intended.
    For OTC drugs, you should always read the Drug Facts Label. The label tells you what the medicine is supposed to do, who should or shouldn’t take it, and how to use it. The Drug Facts Label uses simple language and an easy-to-read format to help people compare and select medicines and follow dosage instructions. Yeah so....

    I would not limit this to just traditional media, even places like tiktok and spread misinformation all the time just because they see other people doing it. Take the pink sauce controversy for example. There is a really good video from Ann Reardon, an actual food scientist that debunks many of the negative claims on the pink sauce that no one else has looked into.

    I appreciate that Mat is not only concerned with this stuff, but can make it entertaining to learn about, is responsible with his research, and willing and consistent in his ability to correct himself and even apologize when he gets stuff wrong. He treats safety with the respect it deserves, isn't protective of his ego, and still knows how to stand firm when he knows he's in the right and someone else needs to own up to their own nonsense or mistakes. Trad media is full of useless 24/7 news shows with only a few good gems left that still mess up like this (namely Stephen Colbert in my opinion, to each their own). At least with online media, you can cross-compare and form your own opinion rather than getting the same copy just in a different order across 200 news stations.
    All that said, thank you Mat for having integrity. Whenever you recommend creators or people to listen to, I take your opinion seriously because it's always been trustworthy.

    Love how the news keeps blaming “the youth” when, in reality, since younger people were more likely to see it on Twitter or tiktok, in its original, obviously-satire form, we’re LESS likely to believe it, whereas older people, people who don’t have tiktok and are more likely to hear about it on the news, aren’t going to understand that it’s a joke, and are thus more likely to believe it

  • 𝐏𝐇𝐎𝐄𝐍𝐈𝐗 シ︎

    And yet we wonder why teenagers and "younger" people are always stereotyped against. Sure, some trends are genuinley stupid, but when the media presents things like this that are meant to be jokes in such a serious light, is when the real problem ensues. Thanks MatPat for presenting this issue at face value with none of the drama and exageration that the news seems to put on it.

      @0816 M3RC It's absurdist humor. The joke is that something mundane (cooking chicken) and something else mundane (taking nyquil) are introduced together in an absurd way. Further points of humor in the dialogue highlighting how bad of an idea it is and highlighting issues like overdosing and the danger of the fumes.

      @Rendom Stranger You missed my point. I wasn't justifying this. What I was doing is pointing out that grouping all "traditional media" in with this leads to people discounting legitimate news organizations, and not all alternatives they find to them are good or accurate.

    • Mallk238

      @Joseph B. The problem with this is that they ARE still reporting on real world events. They are technically still news, it's just that it's often spun in a comedic way, so they might not get into the nitty gritty of what they're reporting on. This, however, is the blatant attempt to find something to make fun of and going with the always easy, low hanging fruit of "let's make fun of teens".
      Like Matpat says in the video, a lot of them are claiming that the fda is making a statement about this trend specifically...even though the "trend" ended 2 years ago and wasn't the main cause for the fda statement, just a side note. That's not just funny reporting, that's straight up lying just to have a segment. There are a million weird things happening everyday. Why waste the airspace on this nonsense when its easier to just look at what florida's doing or even just look at some ACTUAL recent events. Like the actual current trend of kids actually for real overdosing on medicine for the views???

    The bottles or boxes of literally every single medication whether it's over the counter, behind the counter or prescription specifies the dosage and how long each dose should be taken in between (usually 2 to 6 hours, but some medicine it is 12 to 24 hours)
    Another part also usually say something like:
    "Do not exceed [x] tablets in 24 hours"
    "Do not exceed [x] mLs in 24 hours"
    "Do not take after [x] days"
    I would say it's common sense not to use out of all things medicine to cook food yet the media proves me wrong every day

      @Eddie Reekie Fair point though considering the fact that quite a lot of stuff was unknown about Corona and when multiple other variants popped up, it's very hard to not get cautious about it. Even with the very low death rate, the sheer speed of how it spreads is pretty worrying especially when it caused problems with hospital spaces

      @Kara K this is extremely doable. They make a new kind of adderall for children that don't like pills called "adzeny's". Adzenys are chewable adorable that taste like orange candy. Put about 200mg in a coffee blender, mix with orange juice, vinegar, soy sauce, ginger, garlic, red pepper, cornstarch, and some orange zest and you have orange chicken sauce. Cook it on your chicken, boom wakey chicken.

      Checks ingredients: acetaminophen, dextromethorphan, phenylephrine.
      Acetaminophen is the one you need to worry about. A massive overdose of it causes a slow and painful death by destroying the liver. Your body fills with toxins causing horrible pain while you wither away. The antidote is N-acetylcysteine.

    I went in to this thinking matpat was going to talk about why you obviously shouldn’t eat NyQuil chicken but it turned out to be a excellent and refreshing talk about the danger of old school media that doesn’t do it’s research as well as pointing out the real problems they should be covering. Thank you matpat for this, it’s great that every once in a while we get a serious episode that helps educate people about real world issues.

    The actual way to do this is a small dose of melatonin, normally a very small dose, like 1 milliliter of this stuff should do. Mix this with just enough water, and a bit of butter to get your marination steady and tasty. As MattPatt states, boiling this will make it bigger. Boil with chicken, and please be sure to wear a gas mask with it, with a good filter. You will probably be tired after cooking this without a gas mask, which is also good if you want a bed-time dinner.
