In Reply to: Do you sneeze in bright light? posted by Peter on May 25, 2000 at 14:43:52:

: Do you sneeze when it's bright out? If you do I think you could be of some help
: to me. I'm doing a science project on this phenomenom called Photic Sneeze Relfex, which
: is when you sneeze or feel an urge to sneeze when entering an area of bright light from one
: of low or lower light. I'm testing the possibility of this reaction being at all
: hereditary, namely able to be passed on from generation to generation.
: If you have this reaction I would be very appreciative if you could email me at
: brooksy2@zdnetmail.com with information about who else in your family, if anyone, has this
: reaction also. Thanks a lot and again any information will be greatly appreciated.

Yup, I sure do! All my life, and my sibling does, too. My two of my sons do, too. I'm not sure of my daughter, but I think so. Their mother (of Norwegian-Dutch-German descent) does not. I read somewhere that the reflex is common only among the Caucasians, especially the nordic ones.
