Fatal Snogging

A Valentine's warning...

Snogging many partners quadruples the risk of contracting two potentially deadly infections, warns the British Medical Journal. It found in research kissing with tongues was a major factor in spreading the meningococcal bacteria, which can cause meningitis (an inflammation of the lining around the brain and spinal cord), and septicaemia (a form of blood poisoning).

French kissing with at least seven partners in a fortnight increased the risk of contracting meningitis or septicaemia fourfold, researchers said.

Lol Al... that advice is aimed at teens of uni-going age... they are in one of the two highest-risk categories for meningitis and septicaemia. So keep those lips supple, and snog away!

It's a dreadful disease (I used to work for a meningitis charity, so I know all there is to know).
