21 Lies And Myths We Believe To Be True Finally Debunked PAGE 3
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?
11. The monster is named Frankenstein.
The name “Frankenstein" refers to the doctor who created the monster in Mary Shelley’s famous horror novel. His name is Victor Frankenstein. The creature he creates out of body parts never has a name.
12. Wet hair makes you sick.
Wrong again. External temperatures have no effect on your body’s resistance to germs. Although having wet hair in the cold is certainly uncomfortable, it won’t necessarily make you sick.
13. Cold weather makes you sick.
Viruses travel more easily through cold air, which holds less moisture. That’s why people are more likely to fall ill in the winter. But you’re more likely to catch a cold while cooped up inside with germy people than you are outside in the snow.
14. Alcohol keeps you warm.
It makes you feel warm because it dilates your blood vessels, giving your face a warm, flushed feeling. But it also drops your core temperature, actually making you colder. If you feel warm, it’s because your surroundings feel warmer compared to your cooling body.
15. The moon has a dark side.
The same side of the moon always faces the Earth, which is why its surface looks the same each night. The “dark" side is the same color, but it’s just in shadow. “Dark" refers to the fact that the sun doesn’t shine on it.
