– Blood vessels in the ears regulate the temperature of the body, so if they are red, it means the body is overheated.
– This is a very popular misconception. However, as this long-term extension study has shown, myopia in children doesn’t have anything to do with watching TV or sitting in front of the computer.
– Modern microwave ovens are totally safe as long as they are fully functioning.
– No connection has been made between arthritis and cracking knuckles. Bones don’t pop, but air bubbles do.
– Acne is an inflammation of the skin, and chocolate doesn’t cause pimples to appear. There is research that says otherwise, but scientists think it’s controversial.
– If you swallow chewing gum, it will be digested just like anything else. The only difference is that it’ll take a little more time.
– The reasons why warts appear are reduced immunity and human papillomavirus (HPV).
– Unfortunately, hair growth rate doesn’t depend on how often you have it cut. The average hair growth rate is 0.01 inches per day.
– No connection has been found between getting scared and dysfunction of the facial nerve.
– TVs break down over time, no matter how often you play video games.
