HARTFORD, Conn., Oct. 22 (UPI) -- A Connecticut newspaper is warning readers of the dangers involved with emulating Lady Gaga's famous meat dress as a Halloween costume.

The Hartford (Conn.) Courant said wearing raw meat like the pop singer did at the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards can lead to infections including campylobacteriosis, which can bring about fever, muscle ache, diarrhea, dysentery and other symptoms.

The newspaper said wearing a meat dress, which many experts have predicted to be a popular costume this year, can also lead to toxoplasmosis, a parasitic infection that can lead to brain damage or death among those with weak immune systems.
