Can you sneeze without moving your head?

Only if it is a very mild sneeze, as the function of this bodily reaction is none other than to provoke a convulsive movement to expel foreign or irritating substances that have seeped into the nasal airway. To sneeze, the lungs breathe in about 2.5 liters of air, and the epiglottis and vocal cords close to hold it. The abdominal muscles then pull up the diaphragm to increase pressure on the lungs. Finally, the uvula or uvula falls and sneezing occurs, releasing the air at more than 150 km / h. The forward movement of the head facilitates their expulsion.
