Stuffy noses due to pollen can be cleared up with a ringtone
As the cold weather begins to cool down, bringing forth the onset of spring then summer, some people might be dreading as the warmer weather approaches with pollen filling the air. For those who suffer some serious stuffy noses during that period, there may be an unorthodox method that can be used to combat and clear those nasal passages. Although cell phone ringtones allow users to be informed when someone is calling you, it can be used also to rid those snotty noses due to pollen being trapped; according to a report by the Japan Ringing Tone Laboratory (JRTL). The ringtone known as “Haba Sukkiri Melody” emits a tone using 27 variations of frequency ranging from 420Hz to 1070Hz to simply allow trapped pollen in your nose to fall straight out – essentially it will make the nose resonate at the same frequency with trapped pollen. Aside from that specific ringtone, JTRL hosts a catalog of other ringtones that aids with sleeplessness, scaring crows, beautifying skin, and dating skills – definitely all resulting in some boost to the self-esteem of mobile phone users.
