      Common health myths you believed in, busted!

      Common health myths you believed in, busted!

      When it comes to health, there are dozens of myths floating around ranging from old wives’ tales to myths that masquerade as scientific facts. Before you believe any of them, put them to the test. Here, we bust some common health myths.

      Myth: Put butter or ice on a burn

      This is actually the last thing that you should be doing! When skin gets burnt, the major damage comes from the body’s inflammatory response to it. The best way to handle this is to immediately immerse it in cool water. When you apply butter, what it does is, help the heat spread more effectively. Ice damages your burnt skin.

      Myth: Alcohol warms you up

      This is a very common myth that most of us believe in. What actually happens when you drink alcohol is that it makes your blood vessels dilate and the result is that warm blood moves closer to your skin. This makes you feel warm but in reality, this makes you lose your body heat faster.

      Myth: Deos cause cancer

      This headline sent panic waves across a wide spectrum of people. Cancer is a disease whose causes or complex. Just one factor such as using deos is quite unlikely to cause cancer.

      Myth: If you never had a food allergy, you never will

      This is not the case at all. The sad fact is that there has been a rise in food Allergies in the population in general. These range from mild to severe. Anyone can get an allergy to any kind of food and at any point in life.

      Myth: Coffee dehydrates the body

      This health myth has been peddled quite a bit but that does not make it true. Coffee is a diuretic meaning it can create the urge to urinate. However, it does hydrate the body though this cannot be compared to the level of hydration provided by water.

      Myth: Snoring is quite normal

      It most certainly is not. Snoring is a sign that there is something wrong with your airways. Obstructive sleep apnea is a condition that is related to high blood pressure, type 2 Diabetes, and other chronic diseases.
