Did you know: You can’t Kill yourself by Holding your Breath?

breathIts impossible to commit suicide by holding your breath because when holding your breath eventually you have a reflex of a deep exhalation to get stagnant gasses out of your lungs such as carbon monoxide and nitrogen.

Even if you can force yourself to overcome this reflex you would eventually pass out from lack of oxygen to your brain.

After passing out you would begin breathing as normal and after a few seconds or minutes wake up again.
