4 Whopping Health Myths Busted!!! 40

Most of us think we know everything about what’s good and what’s bad for us. But there are few health-related myths that we have been following since ages. Read on to know more about them.

The Sunshine is Harmful

During our science class, we all have learned that excessive exposure to UV rays is very harmful to our skin as it can cause skin cancer and photo-aging. But the truth is there are so many health benefits of spending some time in the sun. Moderate exposure to sunlight boosts the level of feel-good hormone (SEROTONIN) in your body and helps in proper absorption of calcium. The major benefit of sunlight is it helps in the production of one of the major vitamins, Vitamin D in our body lack of which can cause cardiovascular disease. It also helps in prevention of multiple sclerosis and even some cancers such as breast and colon cancer. Thus, the sunshine is good for you but in small doses, avoiding direct exposure between 11 am and 3 pm.

Being Overweight is Unhealthy

The word “OVERWEIGHT” itself is problematic, for so long this stigma that large people, with high levels of body fat, are unhealthy. The constant reports on obesity and its association with diseases like strokes, heart attack, and diabetes have made us believe that fat means death. Surprisingly researchers have found out that people who were merely overweight (not obese) live longer than people with clinically normal weight. Thus, being overweight, not bulky, doesn’t decide you are less healthy than someone of normal weight. Overweight individuals who are fit are far less likely to die prematurely than slim individuals. The key is to maintain a regular exercise routine, a normal brisk walk of half an hour will do.

It’s a must to Drink 8 Glasses of Water

There is no scientific evidence that everyone should drink 8 glasses of water every day, as the need for water varies from person to person according to their lifestyle and environmental factors. Many of us under this assumption that juice, tea, coffee don’t count in our daily water consumption, but they do. According to Mayo Clinic, the food we eat daily provides around 20 percent of water. Thus, don’t be under this impression that you must drink 8 glasses of water even if you can’t and remember that the best indicator that you need to drink water is thirst.

Eggs Raise Cholesterol Level

Another common health myth is since egg contain cholesterol consuming them will increase your bodies overall cholesterol levels, this logic is utter nonsense. Eggs are one of the most nutritious foods, they are the excellent source of protein, full of minerals and vitamins. People who are planning to lose weight should try incorporating eggs in their breakfast as they keep you fuller for longer. Numerous studies have been conducted on the ill effects of egg consumption on health and found no association between egg consumption (one a day) and either risk of heart attack or stroke in otherwise healthy people. Bottomline is if your cholesterol levels are normal then there is no harm in consuming one whole egg a day. But your cholesterol level is little high then it’s advisable to only consume egg white.
