Beer Pong Linked to Herpes Rise
Beer Pong – or to some, Beirut – is no doubt one of the most popular drinking games known on the typical university campus. It is so prevalent that frequently, those interested in playing a round have to sign their name on a “next up” list in order to secure a place on the table. But the champions of the table may be signing up for more than Friday night glory.
For those self-proclaimed “beer pong champs,” and for those who get in on the fun less frequently, beware. Studies show the less drunk from those red Solo cups, the better. According to the Center for Disease Control, unprotected beer pong play is nearly as dangerous as unprotected sex.
