Instagram ‘influencers’ are experiencing some serious health issues, and this time, it’s got nothing to do with the recent removals of ‘likes’.

A pretty lake in Spain, called Monte Neme, is becoming quite the hot-spot with ‘grammers, and you can see why, I mean, that colour…

Thing is, the perfect turquoise lake is actually an abandoned tungsten mine from WWII.

And it’s toxic AF.

It’s so hazardous, its locally known as ‘Galician Chernobyl’.

Si un día llegaras a caer, no te preocupes, haz como el sol: que cada tarde cae pero cada mañana se levanta con más resplandor. ☀️

One influencer, known as Uxia, copped an allergic reaction but insisted that while it was “a little bad”, the “photo was worth it”. OK.

Publico reported that more than one influencer had to be hospitalised “for damage to the skin and digestive system” and quoted a woman, who after exposing herself to the lake, became ill with a rash and bouts of vomiting.

🇷🇺Работяги, плавать там не опасно🚨 На следующее утро мои ноги слегка покраснели и чесались дня два, потом все прошло 🙏🏽 Но что не сделаешь ради таких снимков😋Вода на вкус немного кисловата, похожа на мел 😝 🇺🇸It,s not dangerous to swim here. The next morning, my legs turned slightly red and itched for two days, but then everything went. But what wouldn’t you do for the sake of such pictures? The water tastes a little sour 🤮 #новосибирскиемальдивы #золоотвалтэц5 #золоотвал #золоотвалнск #тэц5

Fox News reported that local activists have urged for warning signs be posted.

It’s not the first time a toxic place has caught the eye of social media as an Insta-backdrop, a similar turquoise lake in Siberia recently made news, as well as Chernobyl. Yes, the Chernobyl.
