medical myths

Postby shazza » Sun Dec 30, 2007 9:38 pm

Somewhere in the back of your mind is the idea that you should drink at least eight glasses of water a day to stay healthy.

You may have nodded in agreement when someone mentioned scientific studies showing that, on average, you use just 10 percent of your brain.

And you may have lectured your children about the danger of reading in dim light, which could cause permanent eye damage.

None of this is true.

Oh I'm glad to hear this isn't true - (knowing my luck I sit on an 11% sigh* - my dad did say they broke the mold when I was born, he never did elaborate on that one!!!)
I don't believe in charity. I believe in solidarity. Charity is so vertical. It goes from the top to the bottom. Solidarity is horizontal. It respects the
other person and learns from the other. I have a lot to learn from other people.

Oh Fantasia.... we won't elaborate on that part........

perhaps you use 10% of your brain...... the other 80% is your mouth..... lol .... come to think of it.... sounds pretty close... hummmm ... now I have to use that 10% of my brain to think of all this....

I did like the read... I read things similar to this over the years.... one has to form their own opinion at times ...

ha peas in a pod .. think about it...if we think in unison...even telepathically...we are using 20% combined - whooooaaaa - right up there...busting medical myths...

I like this one ;)

As for drinking eight glasses of water a day, don't try it. Water comes into the body via a number of foods, such as fruits and vegetables, and a zealous endeavor to meet the eight-glass quota might even be dangerous, Vreeman said

Now I don't have to think like a fish or drink like a fish as its all a MYTH...tongue twister ha

Thanks shazza .. great link..fun..
