You Should Never Hold in Your Sneezes Because....

You Should Never Hold in Your Sneezes . . . A Guy Just Ruptured His Throat That Way


Next time you feel like you have to sneeze, don't try to hold it in . . . even if you're in a meeting or on a date or in any other situation where you might not want to let it fly.


Just sneeze.  Or you could make your BODY EXPLODE.


Doctors just published the case of a 34-year-old guy in the "BMJ Case Reports" journal.  The guy recently went to the emergency room in Leicester, England with a swollen neck and trouble swallowing.


 It turned out he'd tried to stop a sneeze by pinching his nose and closing his mouth . . . but the sneeze wound up RUPTURING the back of his throat.  He needed a week of treatment in the hospital, which included eating through a feeding tube.


The doctors say that sneezes come out at about 150 miles-per-hour . . . so keeping that pressure in can potentially cause problems.  And sure, it's rare . . . but you don't want to be one of the few people it DOES happen to.
