Sneezing Causes and Cure

An introduction to Sneezing
Since we have stepped in to this world several times we have experienced of sneezing. Almost all the religions and cultures have their own mysterious thoughts and believe about it, while scientists have their own explanations.

There was one of the ancient beliefs that when someone sneezed his soul was forced out by his body through the nose. They believed that heart stop working for a couple of seconds during sneezing. The concept of saying Bless you after the sneeze started from there. By saying bless you they used to welcome back the soul entering again in the body.

In some cultures sneezing is considered as a sign of good luck, while in some Asian culture by sneezing people think that someone is talking about them behind their back.

Science gives its own explanation for sneezing. According to medical science a tickle or an irritation inside the nose causes sneezing. Some people sneeze because of sunlight. Cold and allergy is also a reason of it. By sneezing we spills out millions of germs and pollute the environment.

It is important that we should always keep a handkerchief in our pocket. During a sneeze we should cover our nose with a handkerchief. Covering nose with hands during sneeze is not a good practice. We spilled out lot of germs on our hands which are dangerous for us as well as of others. The best way to sneeze is to catch your nose with your elbow pit; in this way there are fewer chances to spread germs.

Some main Causes of sneezing

There are very few people who bother to know the reason of sneezing. Sneezing is a response which comes unconsciously. Due to pollution lot of germs infiltrate in our nose lining and causes irritation. Irritation causes a deep breath; as a result it tightens our chest muscles. In short these entire situations generate a sneeze which comes out through our nose.

Mostly a sneeze occurs only once or it ends up with maximum 3 to 4 in one quick succession. In a research it is stated that we sneeze because we wants to get rid of those pollutions that are causing irritation in our nose. We don’t sneeze during sleep because in sleep our nerves that responsible for sneezing are relaxed.

The myth that during sneeze our heart stops working is not true. We only feel so because during sneeze pressure of our chest changes and alters our blood flow. 

Some people sneeze softly while other sneezes louder. Either it is louder or soft everyone makes noise while sneezing. It will be surprising for you that while sneezing we blow out air from our tiny nose with a speed of hundred miles per hour.

Facts about Bacteria

An introduction to Facts about Bacteria

The term bacteria represent single and a very small organism. It is the plural form of word bacterium. Usually bacteria consist of one cell and are considered as the smallest living thing after a virus. Either soil, water, air or even in our body or skin bacteria is found everywhere.

Bacteria in a favorable condition can multiply in billions. Even if it is a small space same as of a drop of water it growth continues in billions.

Generally bacteria are classified in three groups. These bacterial groups are based on their shape. Some of the bacteria have shape similar to a comma; this kind of bacteria is known as vibrio. A single bacterium is not a longer one in size, bacteria grows in group rather than a single cell.

Good and Bad Bacteria
There are two kind of bacteria good one and the bad one. The good one co-exists with our body and help to fight off bad one. Another kind of good bacteria helps our body to function. On the other hand the bad bacteria though not harmful in its characteristic yet it is very annoying like making the bad breath or causing pimples. Another bad one which is really called bad bacteria is the one which causes fatal infections. Good thing is this that there are less than 1% bacteria that are real harmful and makes us sick.

Drying hands with Paper Towel
Drying hand with paper towel is most hygienic, it reduces nearly 60% bacteria from our hands while if we uses a hand dryer it increase the bacteria in our hands up to 255% because dryer blows out bacteria which already living in it.

Oldest known form of life
Bacteria are the oldest known form of live on planet earth even before the dinosaur exists. They exists on planet earth almost from last 3.5 billion years or more. If we lined up bacteria from end to end they will stretch up to 10 billion light years. In every five hours a single cell produces nearly one billion offspring.

Bacteria in our body and food
Surprisingly our body is full of bacteria. There are 10 cells of bacteria living in each cell of our body. Only in our intestine, quantity of bacteria is more than the total population of human on planet earth. Many of the foods we eat contain bacteria. Even some of the foods we create such as yoghurt, pickles, cheese and sourdough, bacteria are purposely added in it.

Wearing Jeans
In a study it is reported that wearing a pair of jeans continuously for a period of 15 months didn’t develop any harmful and unhealthy amount of bacteria.

Sore throat and common colds are caused because of virus and bacteria play no role in these diseases. These sorts of diseases could not be treated by taking antibiotics because antibiotics are not beneficial in such conditions. Scientist has discovered a bacteria-based antibiotic which helps to kill and fight infections and save the life of hundreds of thousands of people every year. There are more reasons to love bacteria instead of fearing of them.

Human bites
Because of bacteria in our teeth and mouth, human bite is considered as one of the most dangerous bite in the world.

Bacteria help to cure Illnesses
There are illnesses which could be cured because of bacteria. Illnesses such as upset stomachs, different type of diabetes, allergies, asthma and many more auto-immune diseases are all linked to a lack of bacterial biodiversity.

Stomach ulcers
It is proved that stomach ulcers are caused due to bacteria and not because of stress. To prove this theory a scientist drank a beaker of bacterium and because of that stomach ulcer was developed in him and he won the Nobel Prize because of his research.
