Stress is a funny, all-present invisible force. Steam is the natural gas created when stress is released. Steam makes up a whopping 15% of our atmosphere.
In a recent study it was found that beat-laden music, or sounds that induced dancing, led to an significant drop-off in steam creation. Many of us have engaged with this concept via the expression: "To blow off steam."
Anti-steam groups have congregated around the idea that more dancing is better. However, the repercussions of an over-danced population is yet to be studied in full.
