Fact : Do you know ? Your sneeze can fracture your rib cage.

Posted on Updated on

Do you know that Sneezing is such a common involuntary activity that every locomotive living being suffers from it. Not only humans but also animals like dogs, lions, etc. also had it at least once a month.


A research found that human being can sneeze up to 100 miles per hour.
Minimum speed of sneeze can be 30 miles per hour.

Much like a temperamental computer, our noses require a “reboot” when overwhelmed, and this biological reboot is triggered by the pressure force of a sneeze. When a sneeze works properly, it resets the environment within nasal passages so “bad” particles breathed in through the nose can be trapped. The sneeze is accomplished by biochemical signals that regulate the beating of cilia (microscopic hairs) on the cells that line our nasal cavities.


Part of the message the brain receives in the leads up to a sneeze is to close those eyes. It’s an involuntary reflex similar to the way your knee reacts when your doctor taps on it with that tiny hammer. A sneeze can’t, however, pop your eye out, like some story tales that you have believe.
But if you sneeze too hard, you can fracture a rib. If you try to suppress a sneeze, you can rupture a blood vessel in head or neck and die eventually.
