Quite simply it is impossible to swallow it as it dries the mouth out quickly. Bu not being to swallow it, it can be inhaled or make you choke, resulting in your possible death. Eating raw liver has choked a few college students in the past by having the same effect. It is too coarse to slide down the throat and gets stuck there.

Cassia cinnamon contains natural coumadin. Too much is bad for the liver. Other varieties of cinnamon, such as Ceylon, have much less coumadin.
