While it’s been a known fact that smoking cigarettes and even cell phones might cause cancer, a new activity is about to be added to list of cancer causers: anallingus, otherwise known as eating booty.

The popularity of eating booty has soared in recent years with increased relevance in hip-hop, porn, and other popular culture.

Now, scientists are saying that it’s just best to stay away from the booty hole altogether.
A study recently published by scientists from the University of Texas states that the rectum and sphincter are typically lined with particular harmful carcinogens which could lead to cancer over a long period of exposure or contact. The head of the study Dr. Jay Messinger says, “it could also lead to a particularly bad case of pink eye that we in the medical field call stink eye.

Some booty eating advocates are in an uproar claiming the study to have a gender bias, but Messinger assures that “the study is a hundred percent ethical and in no way, shape or form paid for by the Men’s Rights Activist group Free the Tongue,” a group who Dr. Messinger helped form for the purpose of educating the public about the dangers of eating booty.
