Nine Out of Ten Public Baby Changing Stations Tested Positive for an Illicit Substance

If you're about to change your kid's diaper in public and happen to notice some white powder on the changing table, there's a good chance that it's cocaine and not baby powder. Researchers in the UK inspected over 100 baby changing tables and found that 92 percent carried traces of cocaine. The study was conducted by journalists from Real Radio in North West England, and though they're not exactly scientists, results are results.

Using specialist wipes, they checked public changing tables in hospitals, shopping centers, police stations, courts, supermarkets, department stores and even churches. Cocaine was found almost everywhere. Oddly enough, plenty of things that we come across in everyday life are probably covertly coated in cocaine, especially money. 

Still, this could reinforce reports that the UK is Europe's cocaine capital.
