Yes — it's true! A lot of people have a dominant nostril that does most of the breathing.

The nasal cycle happens because of erectile tissue in your nose.
What the hell is the purpose of the nasal cycle?
White believes the nasal cycle allows each of our nostrils to perform different functions.
Here's another crazy theory: White thinks the reason why we have two nostrils in the first place is because of the nasal cycle.
In conclusion, nobody really knows for sure why we have the nasal cycle, but there are a lot of different guesses.
