These are some of the most popular health related myths that is believed by a lot of physicians:

You might have heard this from many doctors that you have known saying we use only 10 percent of our brain. That’s not true in real life. Research and studies done in the lab show that we use all parts of our brain. MRI and PET scans have shown no non active areas in our brain. Even at the physical anatomical level, scientist couldn’t find any nerve cells or neurons in our brains that are not active all all.

Some people when they start to get ball, they shaved their head to make the hair growing process faster. But it won’t happen because it’s just a myth. There was a studies done where they compared growth of hair in shaved and non shave patches. It turns out this myth is false. The hair growing on shaved head was neither faster nor any darker and thicker.

Now this might be the most popular myth ever – we should drink at least eight glasses of water a day. But the truth is, there is not research, scientific, and medical evidence to prove the suggestion to drink that amount of water. The fact of the matter is eight glasses of fluid every day is recommended, but not eight glasses of water every day. See the confusion between water and fluid.
