Since this wasn’t an issue for me a month ago in Boston, and I’m having a similar effect, I’m gonna have to guess it has something more to do with that clean, crisp, Detroit air.

But what do I know?

1 in 4 is the highest stat i’ve heard. i thought it was only 10% of the population. guess we aren’t as special as we thought!

I can’t imagine it’s really 1 in 4, otherwise there would always be people sneezing around us. I don’t personally know any other than me that sneezes consistently whenever introduced to the sun, but a number of friends and relatives have said that they do themselves have a much weaker form of sun sneezing.

I agree with Dan. 1 in 4 is wild. Possibly 1 in 4 use the sun to bring out a sneeze that won’t come, but the percentage who sneeze when they come out into the sun is much much smaller.

Back in the 1990s when the Internet was new, the subject came up and about half a dozen people who experienced photic sneezing started corresponding about it. Though you wouldn’t think so now for all the references that are on the net now, but in those days, several of us had never met anyone else with the reflex.

So we got together and pooled what we could find on the subject, and it gave Photic sneezing resources : http://www.photic-sneezing.fr.st/
