Myths you may, or may not have heard, Bruce squashes them.
Cover your head to stay warm in the winter. Fact or fiction? Bruce says it’s not true. You don’t lose any more heat through your head than you do any other part of your body that’s exposed.
“Put that hat on (or) you’ll lose all your body heat through your head,” Bruce never really bought into that statement. “If that was the case wouldn’t they tell you to take your hat off in the summer because all the body heat would be released through your head and you’d be able to cool better?”
Eat fresh fruits and vegetables, not frozen.
“Yes, (if) you pick it and eat it that’s better than frozen, but according to researchers, fruits or vegetables start losing their nutrients once they are picked from the farm,” says Bruce. “On the other hand, frozen it immediately processes and it would retain those nutrients a little better.”
Cracking your knuckles causes arthritis.
“Not according to one doctor. The popping noise is heard from the displacement of air in the joint and the supporting ligaments, and tendons gliding over the joint surfaces, that’s all it is,” says Bruce.
Also, that gum you swallowed won’t take seven years to digest.
