These 3 TikTok trends could be harming your health

TikTok challenges are often created and performed by people who aren't health professionals.

As a result, many of these trends can be harmful to users who aren’t aware of the consequences.

‘Dry-scooping’ involves taking pre-workout powders without water.

It can result in serious health effects such as lung irritation, digestive issues and heart palpitations.

The ‘Gallon of Water a Day’ Challenge includes drinking 3.7 litres of water every day for a month.

However, it could cause vomiting, headaches, severe liver damage and kidney problems.

The ‘75 Hard’ Challenge entails high-impact exercising for 75 consecutive days without rest days.

But, TikTokers must know it can cause stress fractures, knee injuries and iliotibial band syndrome.
