    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.
