Can the human voice shatter glass?

How do nasal polyps affect the sinuses?
Sanford Health answeredNasal polyps are usually your body's reaction to an adverse event that manifests themselves as bulges in the lining of the nasal tissue. Polyps pose several problems but most often are associated with reduced airflow through the nose when you take a nasal breath or they may swell and block the sinuses from draining properly. While they can often be treated with sprays and/or medications, in some situations, surgical intervention is necessary to remove the polyps.
What are the different parts of the throat?
There are two major parts of the throat: the pharynx and the larynx. The pharynx can be thought of as the upper part of the throat, specifically the tonsils. The back part of the tongue comprises the upper part of the pharynx as well. The larynx, or the voice box, comprises the epiglottis, which is a normal flap of tissue that covers and protects the voice box during swallowing. The vocal folds are also a very critical part of the voice box.
