"Hiccups are diaphragm spasms, the major respiratory muscles that are transmitted to the voicemails that produce typical noise," says Diego Golomb, biologist and researcher at Conicet.
As for the questions that may affect people who can impact these spasms, Golombek tells an old fable: "There is an old story of a soldier wishing to cure the hiccups of a colleague, to show his gun, he accidentally fired, not just hiccups and his life ended" He jokes, and asks whether he or she is a source of belief.
