I'm not sure exactly what's being said here but I know it's incorrect to say that people -usually- only breathe through one nostril at a time. When they aren't congested (which admittedly isn't often) I always breathe through both at once.. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 22:38, 18 July 2007
Then you are quite especial. It is indeed true, that people usually breath only through one nostril at a time, even if they're both totally free and uncongested — as for me, I'm currently left-breathing. Ask me again in half an hour or so. ;) — N-true 00:15, 19 July 2007 (UTC)
Testing with the use of a small piece of tissue paper held in tweezers and a mirror shows that my nostils are both moving air when I breathe. Though one does seem to have a slightly stronger flow than the other. I am not suffering from any cold or other respitory condition. So, I think the one-at-a-time claim is false. Obviously a larger sample would be needed for confirmation. I suggest we get the mythbusters :) - Anon one-time contributer. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 15:10, 1 February 2008 (UTC)
