Weird Sneeze Facts
It is the time of the year when it seems as though everyone is either getting sick, sick, or getting over being sick. Since it is cold and flu season, there are a lot of people coughing and sneezing their way through the day.
I was given a few facts about sneezes this morning, and while sneezing can seem to be violent, not everything I have heard is necessarily true. No, your heart does not actually stop, but a sneeze can change your heart's rhythm. That may be the reason we say "God bless you" when someone sneezes.
I had to do some looking around for other facts about sneezing, yes, I am odd that way. I also did more than my fair share of sneezing earlier this week. I found that sneezing can be violent, people have fractured a rib when sneezing. Ouch. For more sneeze related facts, check out the Reader's Digest site, and Gesundheit.
