ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – The side effects of trying to be polite.
There are all kinds of sneezes out there. Some people sneeze loud, some are more discreet, and then there are those who try to stifle the sneeze all together, but health experts reporting to the British Medical Journal say, don’t do that! Trying to suppress a sneeze can be harmful.
‘Sneeze snuffers’ have had difficulty swallowing, lost their voices, even ruptured their throats. The doctor’s advice is to just let it out.
