MONDAY, April 22 (HealthDay News) — As if parents didn’t have enough to worry about, it seems a growing number of kids are taking the “Cinnamon Challenge” — a stunt that has landed some in the ER, pediatricians warn.

The Cinnamon Challenge sounds simple but is almost impossible: Swallow a tablespoon of ground cinnamon in 60 seconds without the help of a drink. Invariably, the taker ends up gagging and coughing up the spice — creating a big brown cloud dubbed “dragon breath.”
