    greeting.
    MDs warn teens: Don't take the cinnamon challenge.


    News2013
    Associated Press
    Don't take the cinnamon challenge. That's the advice from doctors in a new report about a dangerous prank depicted in popular YouTube videos that has led to hospitalizations and a surge in calls to U.S. poison centers.
    The fad involves daring someone to swallow a spoonful of ground cinnamon in 60 seconds without water. But the spice is caustic, and trying to gulp it down can cause choking, throat irritation, breathing trouble and even collapsed lungs, the report said.
    Published online Monday in Pediatrics, the report said at least 30 teens nationwide needed medical attention after taking the "challenge" last year.
    The number of poison control center calls about teens doing the prank "has increased dramatically," from 51 in 2011 to 222 last year, according to the American Association of Poison Control Centers.

    "People with asthma or other respiratory conditions are at greater risk of having this result in shortness of breath and trouble breathing," according to an alert posted on the association's website.
    Thousands of YouTube videos depict kids attempting the stunt, resulting in an "orange burst of dragon breath" spewing out of their mouths and sometimes hysterical laughter from friends watching, said report co-author Dr. Steven E. Lipshultz, a pediatrics professor at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine.
    Cinnamon is made from tree bark and contains cellulose fibers that don't easily break down. Animal research suggests that when cinnamon gets into the lungs, it can cause scarring, Lipshultz said.
    Dr. Stephen Pont, a spokesman for the American Academy of Pediatrics and an Austin, Texas pediatrician, said the report is "a call to arms to parents and doctors to be aware of things like the cinnamon challenge" and to pay attention to what their kids are viewing online.
    An Ypsilanti, Mich., teen who was hospitalized for a collapsed lung after trying the cinnamon challenge heartily supports the new advice and started her own website - at the site she telling teens to "just say no" to the fad.
    Dejah Reed, 16, said she took the challenge four times - the final time was in February last year with a friend who didn't want to try it alone.
    "I was laughing very hard and I coughed it out and I inhaled it into my lungs," she said. "I couldn't breathe."
    Her father, Fred Reed, said he arrived home soon after to find Dejah "a pale bluish color. It was very terrifying. I threw her over my shoulder" and drove to a nearby emergency room.
    Dejah was hospitalized for four days and went home with an inhaler and said she still has to use it when she gets short of breath from running or talking too fast. Her dad said she'd never had asthma or breathing problems before.
    Dejah said she'd read about the challenge on Facebook and other social networking sites and "thought it would be cool" to try.
    Now she knows "it's not cool and it's dangerous."

    This seems to similar stupidity like for example "water poker" (in my country one 12-year old girl died at the last year when "played" it with friends and drunk over 6 liters water during short time) or breathing helium from balloons or helium tanks (it causes funny "Micky Mouse"- voice but may also cause suffocation).

    Too much cinnamon dangerous to your health.

    Cinnamon has the potential to cause several dangerous medical side effects because of the coumarin it contains. Amounts normally used could cause serious health issues.

    Commonly used amounts of cinnamon may cause adverse health effects due to its content of coumarin, according to a new study in Norway published in the journal Food and Chemical Toxicology. Coumarin is toxic to the liver, is an anticoagulant (it thins the blood), and causes cancer in rodents. The Norwegian researchers established a new Tolerable Daily Intake (TDI) for coumarin of 0.07 mg per kg of bodyweight per day. By using cinnamon on oatmeal or other cereals just a few times a week, it’s estimated that the TDI in children and adults can be greatly exceeded. Researches stated that even a few weeks of ingesting high amounts of coumarin can be dangerous to our health.

    Another group of researchers had previously proven that the absorption of coumarin from Cassia cinnamon is almost the same as that absorbed from isolated (pure) coumarin. Thus, we can rely on the TDI for coumarin to measure the risk of coumarin ingestion from cinnamon. This study was performed on humans, and was published in the journalMolecular Nutrition & Food Research.

    The type of cinnamon used might be part of the problem. There are two main types of cinnamon, Cassia and Ceylon. The Cassia cinnamon powder has much more coumarin than the Ceylon type. It’s hard to detect which type is Ceylon if you buy the powder form, although Ceylon has a more subtle flavour. But if you buy cinnamon sticks, the Ceylon bark will have many thin layers.

    Cassia cinnamon should only be used sparingly, as a very light sprinkling, and not in teaspoon amounts. The safer option is to use the Ceylon type.

    respected sister Queenislam,I don't know the reason why you responded to my "dislike" with another one.I was coherent with the matter,when I watched the last video,I thought that guys around the world have nothing to do.thyen I posted the "dislike" because I didn't like what the guy made and I disliked the fact that we already have seen enough videos about tha strange challenge,but it has nothing to do with TTI.if I tried that challenge it was thanks to your video,if you didn't post that,maybe I would have never known about it
