Four Grooming Habits That Can Kill You

You wake up every day and get ready, but some of the stuff you do is more dangerous than you think.  Here are four grooming habits that COULD kill you . . .

#1.)  POPPING A ZIT.  Dr. Oz calls the middle of your face the "Triangle of Death" . . . because the blood vessels around your eyes and nose drain to the back of your head, and meet up with veins at the base of your brain.

--And every time you pop a zit in that area, or pluck a nose hair, bacteria can get in.  And infections can cause vision loss, paralysis, headaches, and even death. 

#2.)  CLEANING YOUR EARS.  If you poke around in your head with a STICK too much, bad things can happen.  Here's proof:  Three years ago, a Montreal man died of meningitis after bacteria hitched a ride from his outer ear into his brain.

--It happened because he punctured his eardrum during an especially passionate cleaning . . . then bacteria from the infection got in through the wound.  And doctors said he probably caused the INITIAL infection by cleaning his ears too often.

#3.)  USING A TOOTHPICK.  You can't digest wood.  So if a toothpick breaks and you swallow a piece by mistake, the splinter can pierce the wall of your intestines.  Then bacteria can leak into your body and cause sepsis, which can kill you.

#4.)  USING SPRAY DEODORANT.  In 2008, a 12-year-old kid in England died of abnormal heart rhythms after using WAY too much spray deodorant.

--Doctors eventually found out the kid already HAD a heart problem that was just TRIGGERED by the spray.  But it still qualifies as death by deodorant.

Here are Six Deadly Things You'll Probably Survive . . . Including Plane Crashes, Gunshots, and Poisonous Bites

Almost EVERYONE is afraid of one of the following things:  Plane crashes, getting shot, getting stabbed, being bitten by a snake or a spider, or getting struck by lightning.  Well . . . RELAX, coward.

--Believe it or not, your odds of surviving ALL of those are WAY better than you ever imagined.  Check this out . . .--You have a 96% chance of surviving a plane crash.  There were 53,487 people in plane crashes in the U.S. between 1983 and 2000 . . . 51,207 survived.

--You have a 95% chance of surviving a gunshot, as long as you get to a doctor quickly.  In most cases, only a shot directly to the head or heart will guarantee you're dead.

--You have a 33% chance of getting stabbed directly in the heart.  That's the only one on the list where you have under a 50-50 chance of survival.  But still, one-in-three is a pretty good rate for taking a knife to the heart.

--You have a 99.93% chance of surviving a snake bite.  About 7,000 people are bitten by poisonous snakes every year in the U.S. . . . only five die.

--You have a 99% chance of surviving a black widow spider bite.

--And you have a 90% chance of surviving a lightning strike.
