CINAMMON CHALLENGE-VO

A NEW STUDY WARNS OF THE DANGERS OF THE SO-CALLED, "CINNAMON CHALLENGE."

IT WENT VIRAL LAST YEAR.

TEENAGERS ON YOU-TUBE TRYING TO SWALLOW A SPOONFUL OF CINNAMON THEN COUGHING IT UP IN A CLOUD OF DUST..

THE STUDY IN THE JOURNAL PEDIATRICS REPORTS DOZENS OF TEENS BEING RUSHED INTO EMERGENCY ROOMS MUCH OF LAST YEAR, WITH BREATHING PROBLEMS AND IN SOME CASES, LUNG DAMAGE AFTER TAKING PART IN THE CHALLENGE.

THE GOOD NEWS IS... THE FAD IS FADING...

BUT EXPERTS URGE DOCTORS AND PARENTS TO SIT DOWN WITH THEIR TEENS AND TALK ABOUT THE DANGERS.
