    No not brain damage but postulated lung damage. There is good statistical evidence that sax players have a decreased life expectancy over all other musicians which was published in The British Medical Journal. Hey it's British, so it's gotta be right! Then the article ends in a discussion that after finding no confounding variables that they controlled for, the cause likely reflects the use of circular breathing by sax players as this is the only differentiating common technique used by sax players, so therefor must be the only reason. So there suggestion of circular breathing as the cause for early mortality is just that, a suggestion based on no statistical evidence.

    I have used this technique for years and am still kicking, as is evidenced by my nearly 15,500 posts here on TM.

    and this is why I belong to the LOTGM --- Loyal Order of The GM ------ because GM is nearly correct, and it's documented to be 99.991% of the time -- Onadyism, is worth it's weight in gold --- and last time I checked GM was about 150 pounds, and gold was a 1,000 dollars and ounce ---- meaning ole GM is worth a couple of million bucks ----- ROFL ROFL ROFL
