Mouth breathers! Serious question, why do the mentally impaired breathe through their mouths?
I have noticed for years, mentally impaired (slow) people always have their mouthes hanging open. Even intelligent people, when hung over, or sick start hanging their mouths open. The term "mouth breather" was even coined to insult someone as being "stupid"
What is the connection between intelligence and mouth breathing?

One star? For what? I'm not trying to insult or offend anyone, this is a real symptom of ones ability to think and express themselves coherently.

Sometimes it's because of sinus impairment/blockages...hard to breath from one's nose when it's plugged.
Granted this isn't so in every case, but having worked with challenged individuals over the years, often it is.

Right, I understand sinus issues can require breathing through the mouth, but why when mentally impaired? For instance all of those with downs syndrome breathe through their mouths.
Most obviously "slow" people also walk around with their mouths hanging open.
I'm curious if the act of breathing through ones nose actually effects brain function...there are a lot of environmental sensors in our nose/nasal passages.

Explain yourself.
It's a fact that mentally impaired people breathe through their mouths instead of their noses.

In the west people don't breath right and pay dearly for it psychologically. They breath short and shallow through their nose. Eastern folks breath deep and slow into their stomach and exhale slowly.

I believe that breathing, and especially through the nose, has a profound effect on people. Definitely worth researching and understanding

A lot of mentally impaired people are mentally impaired due to not being put together right in the womb. The mental impairment isn't the cause it's just another effect.

Wiki is saying: Mouth breathing in children can be a cause of abnormal facial growth primarily in the upper and lower jaw shape, leading to Long Face Syndrome or other malocclusions.[1]

One reason, children with Downs Syndrome often have issues with skull formation causing nasal blockage and they often have a cleft plate.

I might be taking this too far, but I read a few years back, pheromone receptors in the nose/nasal passage can effect even sexual orientation, and that extreme nose jobs can profoundly effect your sexuality. Michael Jackson of course comes to mind...

Good thread OP.

From years of meditation I've learned your breaths should be equal.
Also if you pay attention to your breathing it will calm you down.
If my children would get hurt or upset I noticed they held their breath. I would always tell them breath equal times in and out.
It's amazing how fast that would calm them down

5* from me

Here's something on the nose & pheromone receptors;

Which receptors bind pheromones in the nose?
There is heavy evidence that the vomeronasal organ (also called Jacobsonís organ) acts as the pheromone receptor. It is a little sense organ (part of the "sixth sense") just beside the cartilage of the nasal septum and just beside the olfactory nerve. It is only stimulated by pheromones and not by odours, while the olfactory nerve is only stimulated by odours and not by pheromones.

Re: Mouth breathers! Serious question, why do the mentally impaired breathe through their mouths?
And here's an excellent explanation!
"1. The lungs are a primary source of our energy level. They extract oxygen from the air we breathe primarily on the exhale. Because the nostrils are smaller then the mouth, air exhaled through the nose creates back pressure when one exhales. It slows the air escape so the lungs have more time to extract oxygen from them. When there is proper oxygen-carbon dioxide exchange, the blood will maintain a balanced pH. If carbon dioxide is lost too quickly, as in mouth breathing, oxygen absorption is decreased."

 Quoting: NEC99

Overbites cause it too. They make the mouth difficult to close properly, at least not without thinking about it. In the States, that's a mark of low income, of course, since orthodontists cost so much. I think only those on Indian Health Service get that free, regardless of income.

Just a warning, though: anything breathed through the nose goes straight to the brain, so if you find yourself someplace with a possible airborne pathogen, tie a bandana around your mouth and breathe through the mouth till you can get out of there. Do the same if you use bone meal in your garden. One sniff and you're fucked: it's made from 'downer' cattle.
