According to the Library of Congress' "Everyday Mysteries" section (refer to the link, below), sneezing does not cause the heart to stop.

NO. This is a myth. Your heart does not stop when you sneeze.

Follow the related link with information from the American College of Cardiology for the truth behind this much believed myth.
