Every time you sneeze some brain cells die

I was on a interesting site today, one of those that lists interesting facts and I came across a real interesting (but a little bit scary) fact, every time you sneeze some brain cells die. If this fact is true I am in trouble. The last few months my allergies have been pretty bad so I have been sneezing constantly throughout the day and I guess, losing brain cells. My body somehow thinks it must sneeze multiple times after each meal, this has went on for as long as I can remember. Could my brain have too many brain cells and it needs to get rid of them (I am hoping this is the situation though I doubt it) or is my body somehow rebelling against me and wanting "debrain" me? I must admit this fact is worrying me a bit.

nope. it's not a fact. just a silly urban myth. sneezing has no effect (negative or positive) on your brain cells. however, sneezing has been shown to cause statistically significant detrimental effect to one's libido!

I'm a bit hazy on how the effects pedal would improve the situation. Is it simply so you can tweak the equalizer? Or is there something else to it?
