THE ERASER CHALLENGE
THE CINNAMON CHALLENGE
Students and adults alike are taking the “Cinnamon Challenge” which consists of a dare to swallow a spoonful of cinnamon without water. The problem begins as the spice does not break down quickly in water and immediately causes gagging and even vomiting. Doctors are warning of dangers associate with this activity as the cinnamon can prevent air from reaching the lungs. A spokesman from the Food and Drug Administration states the “Cinnamon Challenge” is an obvious choking hazard and should be avoided. Huron High School principal, Arthur Williams, reported that a student was recently hospitalized for 4 ½ days because of lung trouble as a result of the challenge.
Parents are encouraged to discuss with their students the dangers of succumbing to negative peer-pressure, and taking the “Cinnamon Challenge.” For more information see the below link, or search the internet for “Cinnamon Challenge.”
