Young people often challenge each other to try various stunts that may not be safe.
One bad idea in particular is getting the attention of millions of teens and young adults thanks to the Internet. Unfortunately, some of them are being injured.
Its called the "Cinnamon Challenge." There were more than 50,000 YouTube videos depicting youth attempting this activity as of August 2012.
These videos show the subjects coughing and choking, as the spice triggers a severe gag reflex in response to a caustic sensation in the mouth and throat.
This combination of social media, peer pressure and a trendy new fad can be tough to resist for children and teens. Learn why this popular dare is so dangerous, and why you should talk to your teen about saying "no."
