Brazilian bikini waxes killing off crabs?

Summary: Brazilian bikini waxes are reportedly causing pubic lice to become endangered.

Next time you visit your beauty salon you might want to ask for a Brazilian bikini wax because apparently they are causing pubic lice to become endangered.

According to reports Australia's Sydney Sexual Health Centre has claimed they have not treated a woman with crabs for four years.

They also reportedly claim that the number of men affected by crab lice has gone down by 80 per cent over the last decade.

A physician for the health centre told Bloomsberg that: "It used to be extremely common. It's now rarely seen.

"Without doubt, it's better grooming."

It is also reported that removing or trimming pubic hair is an increasingly growing trend, with more than 80 per cent of American college students doing it.
