Sneezing is a physiologic response to the irritation of the
respiratory epithelium lining of the nose.
It's a nerve transmission that tells your brain
something is in your nose that needs to come.
When something enters your nose, you encounter a trigger that sets off your "sneeze center" in your
brain, located in the lower brain stem, signals are
rapidly sent to tightly close your throat, eyes, and
mouth. Next, your chest muscles vigorously
contract, and then your throat muscles quickly
relax. Therefore, air along with saliva and mucus is forced out of your mouth and nose. It happens in less than a second.
1. We close our eyes when we sneeze
2. It is medically known as sternutation.
3. Sneezes protect your body by clearing the nose of bacteria and viruses.
4. Sneezes are speedy. Sneezes travel at about 100 miles per hour and releasing about 100,000 germs in a single sneeze.
So when next you sneeze, remember that no one is calling you from the village...lol. Neither a deity.
