Hard Rock is dangerous for lungs

Listening to Hard Rock or Heavy Metal music may be hazardous to one's health. A team of Belgium scientists from the University of Medicine in Brussels managed to draw such conclusion after extensive research work.

According to the results, music compositions of the above-mentioned styles can in fact be dangerous and can cause an incurable damage to lungs. More specifically, it may result in pneumothorax, a condition when lungs lose their ability to collect air and breath. The scientists have observed three cases of this condition in young people who attended rock concerts regularly; they have also examined a man who would constantly listen to Hard Rock music in his car.

Medics do not recommend those with lung problems to listen to Hard Rock and attend Rock concerts.

Results of the studies can be found in the British Medical Journal.
