Seven Health Myths Even Doctors Get Wrong
I remember thinking as a kid that the statement "You only use ten percent of your brain," had to be wrong. My reasoning was that I couldn't imagine a way to even quantify such a nebulous assertion. I was an empiricist at an early age!
Also as a child, I knew that the stories about strangers tainting Halloween candy had to be BS. Of course I never minded that my parents wouldn't allow us to eat unpackaged candy or fruit. I guess my strength of conviction wasn't absolute.
As for the one that fooled me: Health professionals. Admit it, you still think that reading in dim light ruins your vision don't you?
