Description
We all know that warm milk will put you to sleep, sitting too close to the TV will ruin your eyes, and sick people who are on antibiotics are no longer contagious. As it turns out, none of these statements is true. This alphabetical guide debunks many of our cherished truisms and urban legends, finding that several of our fears are unfounded, while our remedies are often mere placebos. Along with amusing information on the origin of these misconceptions and half-truths, this book features 76 truly eye-opening entries on germs, fitness, disease, hygiene, and of course, sex.
