Published on

Each time it comes to health, myths have a habit of sticking around even after various researchers and experts have proven over and over again that whatever it is that is being said or explained isn’t real. Something interesting about Myths is that people still follow them.

1. Organic Foods Don’t Contain pesticides.
Even the most diligent of farmers is unable to guarantee that their produce won’t contain any pesticides. Wind and water can certainly contaminate organic foods with pesticides.

3. Carrots help you see in the dark.
It is actually a known norm that taking carrots helps people’s eyesight, especially those who have red eyes. As far as how that works, it is exaggerated to the point where they are saying that taking them will help with seeing in the dark.

4. Dropped Food Can be Taken as Germs are not aware.
Almost everybody definitely knows what this means. The Germs are not aware’ notion is very common when people may have dropped their food and opt to pick it up because they believe that then the germs aren’t so common.

At some point in our lives, we’ve all swallowed these so-called chewing gums, and there used to be a saying that they don’t come out and that they stay in the stomach for up to 7 years, something that isn’t actually true.

7. Sitting Too Close To The TV ruins Your eyesight.
‘Stay Far Away from the TV. A common line parents usually use with their kids who are glued to TV There ain’t such a thing as damaging the eyes; however, that will cause eye strain. Please listen to your parents! Save yourself the trouble.
