Top 10 lies that you still believe.

From goldfish having 3 seconds of memory, to Walt Disney being frozen, we countdown 10 lies that you still believe. At some point in your life, you’ve probably heard the your parents say: “Don’t eat too much sugar or you’ll get hyper.” Well, wether your parents knew this or not, this was a lie. Sugar actually has no link to hyperactivity. Despite being notorious for their 3 second memory, goldfish actually have quite good memories. They can remember kinds of light and colours, certain feelings and even music. Goldfish actually remember things for about three months, rather than 3 seconds. It’s happened to all of us, you’re chewing your gum without a care in the world, when suddenly you swallow it. You then take a few minutes to think about the gum that will take 7 years to digest. Well, this was all a lie. You don’t actually digest gum, it just passes right through your body. It’s a popular story that when Walt Disney, he froze himself to preserve his body incase they are able to bring back the dead in the future. Well, this fact is about as true as one of his films. If you didn’t like eating your vegetables growing up, your parents likely enticed you with promises of night vision if you eat carrots. Even if you ate millions of carrots, it would not improve your vision in dark or daylight. Although carrots are a good source of vitamin A, they don’t improve your vision in any way. We have all cracked our knuckles before, whether it was accidental or on purpose. Many people say that cracking your knuckles can lead to arthritis in your joints, but this is false. The popping sound you hear when cracking your knuckles isn’t your bones, but actually small bubbles of synovial fluid popping, which is used to lubricate your bones. It is a popular lie that reading in the dark damages your eyes. Whilst doing this can strain your eyes and even give you headaches, it will not weaken your eyesight whatsoever. It has been reported that the phenomenon was created by parents years ago to stop kids reading under their covers with a flashlight. It is also a myth that watching too close to the television damages your eyes. Although vikings were often hairy, they never actually wore horned hats, but regular metal helmets. The myth was inspired by a popular image dating back to the 1800s of a viking and through this the stereotype was born. Despite this false piece of history, it still persists in popular culture today. 40% have sleepwalked at least once. Although waking them suddenly may cause them confusion, it will not cause them any serious problems. The only thing to be cautious of is if the sleepwalker falls over and injures themselves. So, feel free to wake em’ up! People have often advised each other to wait 30 minutes to an hour after eating before swimming, however doing this is not dangerous at all. The myth is spread by many parents, who were probably told it by their parents and so on, which causes people to spread the myth. In 1963, a scientific study was conducted and found no evidence that eating a lot is dangerous to do shortly before swimming.
