Words can't even describe how gross this is

This story is almost too gross to be real. But it is. Wow.

The China Daily reports that used condoms are being recycled into hair ties and rubber bands in the South China area of Pearl River Delta. Yes. You read that right. USED condoms. USED. And they're popular! Cheap and colorful, baby!

The problem - "There are a lot of bacteria and viruses on the rubber bands and hair ties made from used condoms," a dermatologist at the Guangzhou Hospital of Armed Police, who asked to be identified by his surname Dong, told the local paper. "People could be infected with AIDS, warts or other diseases if they hold the rubber bands or strings in their mouths while weaving their hair into plaits or buns."

Yeah, because they're USED CONDOMS. EWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWAH.
