I heard years ago, not to eat pink snow, because it was explained to me that you would have the worst diarrhia you've ever had in your life. I have found it to be true. And that it seems to also give people "fish bowl head" and pneumonia...I would like to find out more about it, but can't seem to find much info so far...????
