According to Natural Health Magazine
1 in 4 people do not cover their mouths when they sneeze or cough
Approximately 3,000 droplets are expelled in a single cough and they fly out of the mouth at speeds of up to 50 miles per hour.
Approximately 40,000 droplets are expelled in a sneeze, sometimes as fast as 200 miles per hour.
If a person is sick their cough or sneeze could contain as much as 200 million individual virus particles. So, cover your mouth and wash your hands as soon as possible.
Sneezing actually begins in your nerves and it helps to keep you safe. The impulse to sneeze tells the brain there is something in the nose that needs to be expelled in a complex and rapid cascade of events. A sneeze travels about 100 miles per hour.
Sunshine, tweezing your eyebrows, exercise, and even sex can cause a sneeze, however, you never sneeze in your sleep.
Can you stop a sneeze? Breathe through your mouth and pinch the end of your nose.
“Bless you” The post sneeze blessing is from the ancient belief that when you sneeze you are close to death and the blessing will prevent your soul from escaping.
