    Wondered wtf I was reading and then I realized you guys were talking to the guy I blocked for having an animated signature.

    That shit shouldn't be allowed on this site.

    lmao, neither of those links mentioned sneezing.

    How about this link from the same website you linked:

    Nothing inherently wrong with having one...


    Yeah because if he posts on a page several times it'll crash your mobile trying to view the page.

    I said............

    the conditions of a sneeze CAN kill brain cells. not ALL sneezes kill brain cells. but lets explore what happens when some people sneeze. note: I didnt say ALL people

    http://4mind4life.com/blog/2008/02/22/50-things-that-kill-brain-cells/

    http://mentalhealthdaily.com/2014/03/01/list-of-things-that-kill-brain-cells-the-death-of-neurons/
    so yes, the internal cerebral conditions from a sneeze can kill some brain cells

    some people can get hit in the head and not lose brain cells. some lose brain cells by turning their head to fast. everyones different, and some people lose brain cells when they sneeze.

    I never said all sneezes kill brain cells, or all people lose brain cells while sneezing. I said sneezing CAN kill brain cells

    You dont even know what you are talking about, and are quoting sources that arent even reputable to support your argument. Those sources exaggerate the incidence of DAI and underplay the idea of cerebral hypoxia by simply defining hypoxia and coming to false conclusions. Brain tissue may be sensitive, but definitely not as sensitive as you or your sources are trying to claim.

    Correlation does not equal causation. Surely mild brain damage can occur during blows to the head that do not meet the concussion protocol, but attributing this to sneezing or even most forms of headbanging (some people are too intense) is stretching it a bit.

    Btw, I have a degree in biochemistry, am an active EMT, and studying to become a PA. If you are aware of better sources to support your claims, I will be happy to see them. I dont think anyone in medicine claims to be the purveyor of absolute certainty, so I will concede in light of concrete evidence. As it stands, I do not believe brain tissue to be quite as weak as you are implying.

    you have a degree in biochemistry, yet you dont think ischemic events lead to brain cell death???

    Instead of reporting me for frivolous reasons why don't you seek out help in real life? You clearly need it kid.

    I haven't read the posts thoroughly because this argument looks beyond stupid, but please tell me you're not implying that sneezing is an ischemic event.

    Well, I am saying that you are improperly defining what qualifies to be an ischemic event. Brain cells wont start dying in seconds.

    is that an absolute?

    no brain cells are capable of dying from even soft impacts, or oxygen deprivation regardless of duration?

    you actually believe that?

    There are different kinds of nerve cells. I'm most worried about the motor neurons. But it is pretty bad for your brain. If I sniff a lot of rubber cement, I will get a ten minute high with a hard to describe full body warmth, and I will be numb. However, for the next week, I will be stupid. I won't be able to think about anything. That shows how much damage it causes. Luckily, most of it is repaired. However, I am sure repeated use will make me like that permanently. I am not as smart as I used to be. There is both short term and long term brain damage. Most is not permanent, but neurons never grow back the same. They always mutate. I actually wonder if this brings a risk of brain cancer. Some types of inhalants are proven to cause lung cancer.

    There's so many safer ways to get fucked up man, don't you have a crusty uncle that'll buy you a 40 or something? As small as you are a 40 of Hurricane or some shit would fuck you up beyond recognition way longer than frying brain cells.
