    Your Tongue Can Reveal Surprising Things About Your Health

    Tongues. We all have them. And while most of us just use them for talking and tasting (and a little kissing…), they’re capable of so much more. We should stop taking them for granted quite so much. Tongues are actually great indicators of poor health. Really!

    Take a quick look in the mirror at yours. How does it look? Nice and normal? Like everyone else’s? Good. Great! Well done, you’re probably quite healthy. But if there’s something up. Something unusual – you may need to seek medical attention. Here’s a gallery of some of the most common health issues that your tongue can tip you off about.

    WARNING: Some of these are pretty gross, so if you’re eating – stop for a minute, huh?!
