There is a challenge going on around the internet today by the name of Cinnamon Challenge but according to health experts, it can actually be quite dangerous to undertake

The Cinnamon Challenge is making the rounds on the internet today in which individuals are dared to try out a challenge involving cinnamon. According to the Cinnamon Challenge, people are asked to swallow one teaspoon full of cinnamon powder within 60 seconds and without taking any fluids with it.

While the Cinnamon Challenge may sound pretty easy, in actuality it is not, it is very hard to swallow this amount of cinnamon without any liquid and within such a short time. In fact, health experts warn that this Cinnamon Challenge might actually be life threatening since people can choke on the cinnamon powder.

The cinnamon powder is so fine that it can actually be inhaled quite easily and get stuck in the wind pipe. So, it is very much advisable that you do not take the Cinnamon Challenge if you are offered to take it.
