The New York Times recently did some health fact-checking and looked at whether whispering is harmful to your voice , since people with laryngitis are often advised to avoid whispering, lest it further damage the vocal chords. While this isn't true for all speakers, the study's lead researcher recommends that you use “the voice you would use if you wanted to talk to somebody next to you without having other people in the room hear," rather than whispering.
