What is the Cinnamon Challenge?
The Cinnamon Challenge is a dare. You take 1 tablespoon of cinnamon and try to swallow it within 60 seconds without any water. PLEASE “Just say no”.
Why we say NO?
Doctors say the challenge is impossible because the cinnamon cannot be digested without water and warn that by inhaling the cinnamon dust teens run the risk of inflaming or scarring their lungs.
What could happen to YOU
Cinnamon powder can prevent the air from reaching your lungs and you can inhale the dust. Instead of gagging and vomiting, you could choke so severely that it could affect your lungs, which could cause pneumonia or even worse; cause you to choke to death.
