Shaking Your Head to Remove Water from Ears Can Cause Brain Damage, Study Suggests

Specialists at Cornell University and Virginia Tech in US, uncovered that shaking the head to free caught water can cause mind harm in little kids.

S, uncovered that shaking the head to free caught water can cause mind harm in little kids.

“Our exploration fundamentally centers around the increasing speed required to get the water out of the ear waterway,” said Indian-starting point analyst and study creator Anuj Baskota from Cornell University.

“The basic speeding up that we got tentatively on glass cylinders and 3D printed ear channels was around the scope of multiple times the power of gravity for baby ear sizes, which could make harm the cerebrum,” Baskota said.

For grown-ups, the increasing speed was lower because of the bigger width of the ear trenches. They said the general volume and position of the water in the waterway changes the quickening expected to expel it.

“From our tests and hypothetical model, we made sense of that surface pressure of the liquid is one of the pivotal elements elevating the water to stall out in ear trenches,” said Baskota.

Fortunately, the scientists said there is an answer that doesn’t include any head shaking.

“Apparently, putting a couple of drops of a fluid with lower surface pressure than water, similar to liquor or vinegar, in the ear would lessen the surface strain power enabling the water to stream out,” Baskota said.

The investigation was displayed at the American Physical Society’s Division of Fluid Dynamics 72nd Annual Meeting on November 23 in Washington State Convention Center in Seattle, US.
