Fun Fact of the day


Holding a sneeze can be dangerous.

In a 2017 article published in BMJ Case Reports researchers reported that a 34-year-old British man was hospitalized after attempting to contain his sneeze, trapping air in his trachea and essentially ripping a hole in the soft tissue of his throat. "Halting sneeze via blocking nostrils and mouth is a dangerous maneuver," the report says, noting that doing so "should be avoided, as it may lead to numerous complications."
