Yes. It's true. If you were to sneeze for a minute, you could feel that you're not breathing, you don't breathe when you sneeze. So, when you don't breathe, your heart stops. Get it now? Hope it helped!!! :-)
No. That makes absolutely zero sense whatsoever, and is not only illogical but completely dispelled with science. Think about it - if your heart stops beating when you sneeze, what starts it again? Clearly, the heart *cannot* stop beating when you sneeze, and if you knew someone who sneezed 5-10 times in a row you'd know this couldn't possibly be true.
Here's what is: you cannot keep your eyes open during a sneeze.
No, your heart does not stop beating when you sneeze. Sneezing is your body's natural way of clearing impurities (dust, i.e.) from your nasal passage. Closing the eyes while sneezing is also a natural reflex. There is an old wise tale that your spirit leaves when you sneeze so that is why we say "God bless you" but there is no proof that this has ever happened. I hope this info was helpful and God bless you!
Me too Mimi! Im leaning on NO due to the fact that if your heart stopped it would have to start back up it would cause a irregular heart rhythm. Plus if you sneeze several times in a row it would kill you then.
Actually, "God bless you" came about during the time of the bubonic plague. When someone sneezed, it could mean they were coming down with the plague, so the response was "God bless you." (Resource: http://people.howstuffworks.com/sneezing.htm)
All of those people above have answered your question. Some of those people had said no, and some of those people had said yes. And the rest are not so sure. Well, I have one thing to tell you, THE WORLD MAY NEVER KNOW.
No. It's not true. Put your hand over your heart when you're about to sneeze, and put another hand on your mouth, so that boogers won't come flying out everywhere, but you will feel your heart change it's rhythm when you sneeze. I did this before, and I've only felt my heart change it's rhythm, so it's not true.
If your heart did stop when you sneezed, you would be dead.
so how you are alive now? you can not breath beacuse when you sneeze your nose is blocked and you are using your mouth to sneeze. so how can you breath? don't believe these jokes. oh come onnnnnnnnnnnn.
No it's not true it feels like it because when we inhale before sneezing the air pressure in your chest increases and when we forcefully exhale the pressure drops. Blood flow does modify because of the pressure change ,but the electrical activity in your heart goes on steadily all the way through your sneeze. The part about the "God Bless You" came from the Black Plague, sneezing was a symptom of the disease and was viewed as a sign of impeding death. So many people began to say "God Bless You" or "bless you" as if trying to bless them not to die from the disease, or many say as a final blessing. Also many believe that they said "God Bless You" because your soul left your body momentarily and if a blessing wasn't bestowed on them that a demon could enter their body. So basically the reason behind why we say "bless you" is questionable, but what happens is certain we don't die when we sneeze is just the pressure change.
