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


It’s amazing the old wives tales we hear even when we just want to eat something. Even when we eat it can be questioned according to these tales. Below are some of these myths busted.

  • Feed a cold, starve a fever. It’s important to eat what you can while you are sick – whether you’re sick from a cold or a fever. Fluids are especially important as it is easy to become dehydrated when you are ill.

  • Fish is brain food. This one is true. Fish is full of Omego-3 fatty acids, which boost brain function. Fish also helps brain development, which is why it’s important for pregnant women and children to eat fish. Not too much though as it can also sometimes contain high levels of mercury.

  • Eating carrots will improve your eyesight. This statement is not true though the origin of it is interesting. During World War II the British government spread the rumour that their pilots had excellent eyesight because they ate a lot of carrots. They did this because they did not want the Germans to know about the radar they were using.
