Health myths-Well, the pseudo-scientific facts are not easy to replace with the solid points. According to the prescribed language by the doctors, they always say that we should walk at least 10,000 steps in a day. You should go for eating the gluten-free food and drink any liquid after thirty minutes of you have eaten lunch. But do you know that all these believes do not have scientific support till now?
Here we are with the list of the widespread misconceptions such that we always thought of them to be the scientific facts for us.
Gluten is not good for your health.
According to the research by the scientists on the 650 gluten-free products, it was out that, to the regular equivalents gluten-free products have high calories. The gluten-free product is rich in sugar, fats, and less in the number of proteins present in it. Many people suffer from allergies, and hence they have to eat gluten-free products. It is most of the cases in which people suffer from wheat allergy. It can harm the small intestine of the human body. But if you will limit your diet, then it might cause heart diseases.
The activated charcoal can help you in the treatment of hangover.
Hangover mainly occurs when alcohol turns into toxic acetaldehyde in the liver, and later it enters the bloodstream. The activated charcoal is the excellent absorbent of the juice from the blood and hence helps in its disposal through the intestine. But the fact is, it can only work within one hour of drinking. And therefore it is a pointless idea if you will let it for the early morning to dispose of alcohol.
To get rid of a headache, you can go for nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. And also you can go for drinking a lot of water.
There are harmful caloric food materials.
According to the health myths of people tomato, broccoli, cucumbers, grapefruit, and celery are different fruits with the negative caloric value. But to the date, yet we do not have any scientific proof behind it. They are low in the calories and hence after eating them your body will require less energy than the usual one. These food products are rich in water amount and fibers which do not need much food to digest.
You should drink water with food.
We all are aware that water is the best for the digestion of the food. It helps in the breakage of food into small pieces. It breaks the big lumps of the food and then delivers the acid which ferments into it. It will help in the dilution of the gastric juices, but it will not let to interfere with the working of the stomach. And then the latter helps in the regulation of the concentration of the gastric juice and the glass of water helps in the digestion of the food by breaking it into the fine particles.
The bar soap will transmit the bacteria.
Well, let us make you sure that no soap in the world will give the transmission of bacteria. It will not work even in the case of the Ebola virus. You are safe to use it. It was all the result of the experiment conducted by the scientist. They placed the bacterias on the soap bar. Later they passed on the same bar to the other participants. They performed the same manner as the experiment. And hence with the results, there were no bacterias in the hands of the participants.
Antiperspirants are dangerous.
Antiperspirants are useful only if hey will block the pores from where the sweat comes out. It is in the belief that aluminum can even cause Alzheimer’s disease. It is an association which says that there is no proof which states that the aluminum plays a role in the development of the disease and hence there is no point which means we can get rid of the antiperspirants.
The antiperspirants can even cause kidney diseases, and hence it is one of the health myths which debunked by the scientists from the National Kidney Foundation. It says that it is impossible to absorb a lot of aluminum through the skin which can damage your kidneys.
