Even when Mumbai Police, Jaipur Police, Delhi Police and various other security officials have issued warnings against the viral Kiki Challenge, people are not ready to say bye to #InMyFeelings. While the scary challenge is still a hot topic everywhere, another challenge is making rounds on the internet and it is as dangerous as it gets.
A new ‘Dragon’s Breath’challenge has gone viral on the internet in which people are seen eating candies dipped in Liquid Nitrogen, after which their breath turns cold and steamy.

As much fun as it looks, the health department has issued a warning against this challenges saying, ‘liquid nitrogen can melt your mouth and internal organs’. The Suffolk County health department warned in its statement, ingestion of liquid nitrogen can cause severe damage to the mouth, esophagus, and stomach.
"Dragon's Breath is a food novelty made by freezing cereal puffs in liquid nitrogen. The frozen cereal is then served in a cup and eaten using a skewer or similar utensil," they wrote. "Liquid nitrogen can cause damage to a person's skin and internal organs and, if inhaled, it can cause asphyxiation (lack of oxygen)."
Reports of people already getting affected by doing this challenge are making headlines. A child in Florida had to be hospitalized after he ate candies soaked in liquid nitrogen. His condition was so serious that his mother had to take it to Facebook to advise others against it.
