The one that we are really hated is nose blocking when flu attacked. In this condition we felt uncomfortable and difficult to breathe so we try to discard snot out loud from our nose.
Be careful, the recent research finds that that action can cause sinusitis
. Researcher also states that these habits can increase blood pressure in the brain.
Dr Owen Handley J and other infectious disease expert from University of Virginia said, the pressure generated when the snot out can cause several diseases ranging from sinusitis to hypertension.
Dr. Hendley has been experimenting with a tool equipped with CT scans to measure the pressure produced when a person coughs, sneezes and runny nose with a hard issue.
The results show, among the three activities undertaken during a cold
person, the greatest pressure resulting from the activities snot out fast.
"Coughs and sneezes produce only small pressure on the nasal cavity. But when the snot out fast, the pressure produced very large even with diastolic blood pressure is determined by the person," says Dr. Hendley is quoted from the New York Times, Sunday (10 / 1 / 2010).
Although apparently not dangerous, but if done continuously can cause sinus disease and trigger increased blood pressure in the brain.
