1.People should drink at least eight glasses of water a day
A suitable allowance of water for adults is 2.5 litres daily in most instances.Most of this quantity is contained in prepared foods.Studies suggest that adequate fluid intake is usually met through typical daily consumption of juice, milk,…In contrast, drinking excess amounts of water can be dangerous, resulting in water intoxication, hyponatraemia, and even death.
2.We use only 10% of our brains
This myth arose as early as 1907, propagated by multiple sources advocating the power of self improvement and tapping into each person’s unrealised latent abilities.Evidence from studies of brain damage, brain imaging, localisation of function, microstructural analysis, and metabolic studies show that people use much more than 10% of their brains.Studies of patients with brain injury suggest that damage to almost any area of the brain has specific and lasting effects on mental, vegetative, and behavioural capabilities.
These and many other myths you may have heard on TV or read in magazines. For some there is no evidence to confirm them, others have been studied and proved wrong.
