21 Lies And Myths We Believe To Be True Finally Debunked
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?
16. Caffeine dehydrates you.
Caffeine does have a slight diuretic effect (as in, it makes you pee), but a cup of coffee won’t dry you out. That’s because it’s mostly water — which is also why it makes you have to pee.
17. Different sides of your brain do different things.
You’ve probably heard the whole “left-brain, right-brain" thing, but the brain is not so clean and organized. There’s no real distinction, but it seems that skills come from various places. Any part of the brain can contribute to any activity.
18. Dogs sweat through their tongues.
This is more of a misunderstanding. Dogs do regulate their temperature by panting, but it’s not sweat. Dogs actually sweat from their paw pads.
19. You have to wait 24 hours to report a missing person.
If someone you know is missing, don’t wait a full day! This dangerous rumor is very false. You can report someone missing at any point.
