We all know that the things we have heard in our lives that are true… you know like Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny and the list goes on. Just how many old wives tales are you carrying around that aren’t true?
Bulls Get Angry When They See Red
This has nothing to do with the color red. Bulls are colorblind and it's the waving movement of the cape that annoys them.
There is no connection between stepping out with wet hair and falling ill. You'll probably feel chilly if you skip the blow-dry on a cold day but you won't fall sick. Flu and cold are caused by viruses, not low temperatures.
Carbohydrates Make You Gain Weight
It’s a common belief that cutting down on carbs helps you lose weight. But before you eliminate carbs from your diet completely, listen to what the experts have to say. According to Jean Harvey-Berino, head of the department of nutrition and food sciences at the University of Vermont, there is nothing inherently fattening about carbohydrates. Complex carbs in grains, fruits and vegetables provide energy to the body and thus are very important. The carbs to be avoided are the simple or refined ones present in foods made of white flour or with a high sugar content.
We Use Only 10 Percent Of Our Brain
On those days when you can't recall a name or phone number, it's tempting to wish for more brain power. Only we're using all that we have, just not all at once, says Dr. Marie Pasinski, staff neurologist at Massachusetts General Hospital, faculty member at Harvard Medical School and author of “Beautiful Brain, Beautiful You” (Hyperion, 2010). "Think of your brain as a computer with special programs and software to allow it to perform an amazing array of tasks," says Pasinski. At any given time, not every single application is in use. When we are focused on a specific task, the parts of the brain needed for that task become more active.
Einstein Failed At Math
Many generations of students have consoled themselves for poor mathematics skills believing that even Einstein failed in the subject at school. But this is not true. He not only excelled in Maths but had mastered differential and integral calculus before he was 15. Einstein, however, failed to crack the entrance exam of the prestigious Federal Polytechnic School (or Academy) in Zurich, Switzerland at 16 years because he did not fare well in non-science subjects, especially French.
Dogs Sweat By Panting Or Salivating
Most of the sweat glands in dogs are located in the paws or footpads and none on the tongue. Panting and salivating is a way of regulating their body temperature as it causes evaporation from the moist lining of their lungs.
