Studies show that more and more teens and college students are playing Beer Pong. Beer companies like beer pong because beer is part of the game. Therefore, beer sales are up. What this group of young adults doesn’t realize is the fact that the beer pong ball rolls around the floor, is touched by everyone, and everyone sips after all of the players before him or her.
The result of the game is more than just the common cold or a sore throat. The fact is, the beer pong ball has picked up lots of bacteria and germs, enough to cause mononucleosis (mono). Hopefully with time the facts about the filthy beer pong ball will get out to this group and they’ll be smart enough to find another activity. It’s no particular fun getting sick.
