In a video that is doing the rounds of the internet, a man is seen using a pressure cooker to inhale steam.
The video, posted by Twitter user @vineet10, shows the pressure cooker placed on the stove with a long pipe to direct the steam to the lid of another pressure cooker, where it is inhaled.
“Where there’s a will there’s a way” says the caption of the video.

While many lauded the man for finding an alternative method of inhaling steam on social media, some expressed concerns over the method:

Not recommended as per Disaster Management practices. This pressure steam is not controlled. Please use the store purchased vapouriser.

This is extremely dangerous …while it may look cool the pipe may come out from either side causing severe third degree burns pls don’t try this at home

No wonder India is suffering the way it is. People believe in myths more than science.

Please don’t promote such practice. This is really very dangerous in many ways to health like burn skin, eyes damage or etc.
