Loud Music Can Collapse Lung

Loud Music Can Collapse Lung
Reuters - Blasting music can be hard on the ears and the neighbors, and now researchers say it can also pack enough punch to collapse a lung.

Reporting in the medical journal Thorax, they describe the cases of four young men who suffered a lung collapse -- technically called pneumothorax --that appeared to be triggered by loud music. Three of the men were at a concert or club when the pneumothorax occurred, while the fourth was in his car, which was outfitted with a 1,000-watt bass box because he "liked to listen to loud music."

Never mind the water cannons for riot control. Barry Manilow at 1000 Watts will have the streets cleared in no time!
