HEALTH TALES
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST


These old wives tales may be among some of those you will hear most often. This is because they include what will make you sick and what’s good for your health. And so many times, people love to comment on what you should or shouldn’t be doing. Next time you hear one of these, you’ll have the answer!

  • If you go outside with wet hair, you’ll catch a cold. Viruses, not weather, cause colds. It’s more common to get sick during winter months because these viruses thrive better indoors due to the warmer conditions and also because the air may be more dry indoors.

  • If you cross your eyes they’ll stay that way. This one is just wrong. Plain and simple.

  • Cracking knuckles causes arthritis. This one also isn’t true but knuckle cracking isn’t really good for your health. It can cause hand swelling, weak grip strength, and can impair hand function.

  • Too much loud noise can cause ear damage. This one is true. As little as fifteen minutes of excessive noise can cause temporary hearing loss. The loud noises cause the eardrum to vibrate excessively and will damage the tiny hairs in the inner ear. Although this is temporary and will usually pass on its own in a day or two, constant exposure can lead to permanent damage.
