    Don’t try this at home: Firebreathing

    While most common pastimes carry risks such as slips, trips and falls, when you choose firebreathing as your hobby, you face a whole new realm of health and safety risks.

    The dangers of firebreathing

    Usually, firebreathing is an act reserved for the Big Top, on stage performances or street carnivals.

    It’’s an impressive sight to say the least, and the technique behind breathing fire is relatively safe for those who have mastered the art form. That being said, for those who haven’’t, the stunt can be extremely dangerous.

    The act itself requires the careful synchronisation of breathing a fine vapour of fuel over an open flame. When you attempt firebreathing at home, you are at risk of firebreathing-related injuries and illnesses, generally caused by use of unsuitable fuels and lack of proficiency in terms of the technique required.

    As well as the basic pops, which usually create the illusion of a small ball of fire, there are multiple other firebreathing stunts, including the carousel, volcano and campire, which professionals spend years upon years perfecting.  This shouldn’’t be underestimated. To attempt this skill at home is simply a risk to you and your home.

    The majority of recorded firebreathing-related accidents are due to untrained performances and incorrect fuel usage, including alcohol.

    Common firebreathing injuries and illnesses

    Some of the more common firebreathing injuries and illnesses, include, but are not limited to:

    • Mouth and throat cancers
    • Dry cough
    • Severe burns
    • Tropical heat burns
    • Pneumonia
    • Respiratory problems
    • Fuel poisoning
    • Headache and dizziness
