Inspired by this thread.
It’s common superstition to bless someone, or say “to health/your health/whatever” if someone sneezes in many cultures, the idea being you are saying you hope the person isn’t really sick.
But is there any serious illness that has sneezing as a symptom? I mean…colds can sometimes make you sneeze, and maybe a flu (personally I’ve never sneezed because I had a flu, but I’ve only had a couple, so…)
But is there anything more life threatening that that? Though I guess in “days of yore” a flu was much more serious than it is now, but still…is there anything else a sneeze can be a symptom of? (crazy ass House-esque theories notwithstanding.)
