Wow is what i said when i read this article! Who knew that if i sneeze more and more, im less likely to contract a brain tumour! Even though this is not for sure, i think this is an unreal step in medical science! Even though brain tumours are rare, it would be amazing to know that every time i sneeze because of my spring time allergies, i am kind of saving myself! Laughing

Wheeu for med science... cheers

Too bad i dont have that many allergies Sad but ill be counting my sneezes when spring time comes

Thats crazy! dang it sucks cuz i dont have allergies but i guess ill have to buy some pepper every now and then haha where did they do the tests for this? and how reliable is it? thats actually pretty amazing if its proven to be true i think its safe to say that this is why we say bless you after someone sneezes cause its like you are getting a blessing by being given a chance less of getting a brain tumor. afro

The studies are not conclusive but its a strong idea they have. True that, "bless you" is truly the right saying for a thing like this! Yeah, me and you will have to hit up a grocery store and run up and down the aisles until we find something that makes us sneeze. rendeer

I agree with mark. I would keep pepper on me. lol. Every chance i get i will help the chance of not getting a brain tumor.

Where are brain tumors usually in the brain? maybe it's close to a specific part of the brain that controls the effects of s sneezing?

brain tumors occur in the cerebrum whitch is in the frontal lobe it occurs more often among white people than among people of other races, and also in age more older people and sex males are more common then females. but after reserching this i really dont think sneezing can prevent that

The study began in 2006 with 1,031 participants, ages 18 to 80, including 419 patients diagnosed with glioma (the most common type of brain tumor) and 612 healthy people. The participants reported their medical histories, including allergies.
Researchers found that patients with gliomas were less likely to report a medically diagnosed allergy compared with the people without gliomas. Of the 75 patients who had brain tumors, just 20 patients reported having any allergies (27 percent) while of the 612 healthy patients, 282 reported having any type of allergies (46 percent).
The risk of glioma decreased as the number of reported allergies increased, the researchers said.

Quite interesting when you back it up with some numbers like that!

When I first read this article it didn't seem like this was a very realistic possibility, but after seeing those numbers Kristen, it definitely seems possible. Its hard to believe that something as simple as sneezing can have any positive benefit to your health. I guess during the summer when I complain about having such bad allergies I should be happy instead .. haha Smile
