I thought this was a pretty good article. I did note that a story IV ran was mentioned in the first sentence.
Recently, iVillage posted a slideshow of “27 Dangerous Teen Fads You Should Know About” . Perhaps I define “fad” and “dangerous” differently than iVillage. If something is considered a teen fad, more than an immeasurably small number of kids need to be doing it. And for something to be considered dangerous, it should be likely to cause harm. Most of the “dangerous fads” in iVillage’s slideshow fall at both of these hurdles. In fact, researchers have discovered that at least one of the “fads” in this list has never been tried by any teen, anywhere … ever.
