21 Lies And Myths We Believe To Be True Finally Debunked PAGE 2
Face It We Have Been Led Down The Wrong Path.
Some of these myths were around so long because we took them as unchecked truths.
They are some of the beliefs we have grew up with and were handed down by people before us.
Usually if an elder person said something, what did we know, or why would we even question it not being correct.
Which one of these 21 Myths did you fervently believe?
6. Sugar makes you hyper.
Actually, it doesn’t. Studies show that when parents were told that their children had been given sugar, they believed that the kids were more hyper — even when they were only given placebos. The correlation might come from the fact that sugary treats are often eaten at parties, where kids are more excited to begin with.
7. MSG gives you headaches.
Technically, the jury’s still out on this, but there’s no scientific data to support it. All evidence is anecdotal at this point.
8. Glass is a liquid.
Glass is actually an amorphous solid, not a supercooled liquid. Old windows that are thicker at the bottom? They were just poorly made.
9. Sushi means “raw fish."
It actually translates to “sour tasting," and refers to the rice, not the fish.
10. Undercover police officers are required to identify themselves.
This myth was actually created by Hollywood. Undercover cops don’t have to tell you who they are, so don’t do anything shady.
