Emergency room doctors are reporting more and more kids being treated and hospitalized for eating too many Flamin’ Hot Crunchy Cheetos.
According to one doctor, “It’s almost like a food addiction. They seek out the burn. It’s a little thrill-seeking. It’s like how much can I tolerate? And, I’ve seen a number of children who eat four or five bags and come in screaming in pain.”
