PEOPLE QUITE OFTEN GET THESE WRONG
Added on: 17th Oct 2016
RABBITS LOVE CARROTS
Carrots are actually dangerous to rabbits.
Thanks a lot Bugs Bunny.
YOU WERE THE FASTEST SPERM CELL
You were actually one of the slower cells. Why? Because it
takes several sperm to wear down the egg’s protective
outer layer before it can be fertilized.
CRACKING JOINTS WILL GIVE YOU ARTHRITIS
For those of you who like cracking, it won’t.
But it may lose you some friends.
READING IN DIM LIGHT RUINS YOUR EYES
While it can cause short term eye fatigue because your
muscles are working harder to focus, there is no
scientific evidence that it affects your eyes in the long run.
DADDY LONG LEGS ARE THE MOST VENOMOUS
SPIDERS IN THE WORLD BUT THEIR JAWS
JUST AREN'T BIG ENOUGH TO BITE HUMANS
First of all, daddy long legs can refer to several species,
only one of which is a spider. Second of all,
none of them are that venomous.
YOU ONLY USE 10% OF YOUR BRAIN
In the same way, that you only use 33% of a traffic light.
You definitely use your whole brain, just not at the
same time. Unless you’re having a seizure, then
you are using a lot more of it.
COLD WEATHER GIVES YOU COLDS
No, it doesn’t. The only reason colds propagate during
winter is because of less humidity. In fact, you are more
likely to catch a cold indoors than outdoors. Your internal
body temperature and immune system are unaffected
by outdoor temperatures. And if they are, even by a
couple of degrees, then you are flirting with hypothermia,
which means colds are the least of your worries.
MOBILE PHONES GIVE YOU CANCER
If mobile phones give you cancer, then so do other people.
People are more radioactive than mobile phones.
