There is no relationship between drinking lots of milk (or taking calcium and vitamin D supplements).

The US Department of Agriculture says adults should drink 3 cups of milk a day, to get calcium and vitamin D. However, many studies show there is no relationship between drinking plenty of milk (or calcium and vitamin supplements D) and less fractured bones.

Some studies even show that there is a link between higher mortality rates and, of course, that milk does not have to be responsible for this rate, but milk is certainly not something that is approved.

Organic food is not without pesticides

Organic food does not contain absolutely no pesticides, and it is not really better for you.

Organic food farmers are allowed to use chemicals of natural origin - and in some cases this is worse for the environment than for other synthetic substances. However, the level of pesticides in both organic and inorganic foods is very low, causing no concern when consumed.

In addition, according to a survey of related studies, eating organic foods will not provide any more nutritional benefits than inorganic foods.

Is food safe and picked up safe?

It's so bad when something you really want to eat falls to the floor. But if you pick it up within "one note", is it okay to eat it again?

Natural sugar as honey is better "industrial sugar"

Incorrect! Because sugar in natural products like fruits and synthetic products like candy is the same."Scientists will be surprised to hear the" superior advantages "of honey compared to sugar, because there is almost a consensus that syrup's biological effects are similar to honey. " Professor Alan Levinovitz said.

The problem is that candies and other related products often contain more sugar than allowed, meaning more calories - that's the difference you need to be cautious of.

This misunderstanding probably started in 1974, when Dr. William Crook wrote a letter to the American Academy of Pediatrics, which said: "In the past 3 years I have realized the way . is a leading cause of hyperactivity ".

The letter does not include any scientific research, but it makes people think that the road is "the culprit". However, studies do not support that thought.
