BS busted!!

The British Medical Journal tossed a report this week which definitely make us all feel like dumbasses for believing into these craps.

Seven health myths revealed:-

Number 7, we only use 10% of our brains. It may seem like it, but new research suggests there are actually no inactive or non-functioning areas of the brain. I knew it!!

Number 6, you should drink at least 8 glasses of water a day lots of folks do this, but the co author of the research says fruits and vegetables, even coffee and other liquids count too. I tried this 8 glasses crap, and what it did was just made me pee like a fucking horse!

Number 5, your hair and fingernails grow after death. Not true, what actually happens is that your skin shrinks, or pulls back from the nails and hair.

Myth number 4, if you shave hair, it grows back faster and thicker. The truth is that shaved hair grows back with a blunt edge, so it looks thicker and it’s usually darker since it hasn’t been bleached by the sun.

Number 3, reading in dim light will ruin your eyes. The researchers found no evidence that reading in dim light causes permanent eye damage. Well, I should just continue with my habbit then…

Number 2 eating turkey causes drowsiness. This research says turkey isn’t anymore likely to make you drowsy as beef or chicken, all contain an equal amount of the chemical tryptophan.

And number 1, mobile phones are dangerous in hospitals. Not true, according to this study, one trial found mobile phones interfered with hospital equipment 4% of the time. I knew it!!
