Just proof that you believe half of what you see and nothing that you read.
I have been playing the trumpet a very long time and the biggest danger is DIVORCE - due to attitude not medical condition.
What a bunch of hogwash. Most of us should have been dead a long time ago if that "re-search" had any semblance of truth.
Whenever I feel blue, I start breathing again.
the article left out all the fun gastro-intenstinal stuff
It's a good article but missed some key points. DON'T: (and the RESULT)
Forget to breathe (dizzy)
March in traffic (flat)
Drop it on your bare foot (obvious)

The article also leaves out hypersensitivity pneumonitis (Chest Sept. 2010) which is totally preventable AND reversable with monthly flushing of the trumpet with 91% isopropyl alcohol.
The best way to avoid hypochondria? Ignore anything you can't pronounce.
There's another important piece of medical advice that the author of that oh-so-accurate (sarcasm) article left out--never eat ANYTHING you can't lift.
