Sugar causes Diabetes NOT TRUE. Sugar has no unique role in causing diabetes. Foods that produce high blood sugar levels may increase the risk of diabetes, but sugar has only a moderate effect on blood sugar levels
Sweating Rids The Body Of Toxins

Sweating does eliminate some of the toxins, but you'd die if your body didn't have better ways of cleaning house. Physiologists point out that sweat is about 99% water. The rest is salt, fat molecules, vitamin C, lactic acid (a waste product of muscles), uric acid and ammonia. Any drug you're taking can also turn up in your perspiration. Because the body stores tiny amount of environmental toxins in fatty tissue, it's possible that traces of these substances exit with your sweat as well.

But, the body's main detoxifiers are the kidneys and the liver. The former sends waste products out of the body through urine, while the liver breaks down alcohol, pesticides and other chemicals and shunts them out via the intestines.

So if you want to keep your system clean, skip the sauna and the steam bath in favour of caring for your liver. The surest way is not to drink too much alcohol.

Chinese Food Leaves You Hungry An Hour After You Eat It

Maybe, if you eat the way the rural Chinese really do. That is if you pile on a lot of low calorie vegetables like bokchoy and broccoli and just have plain white rice, the meal won't have any calories - and it probably won't hold you all that long.

But if you eat Chinese food Indian style, the calories should hold you for quite a while. In other words, if you feel hungry soon after a meal of beef or chicken with a heavy orange sauce or other sugar or fat laden tapping (plus egg rolls, fried Peking ravioli, garlic chicken and fried rice), that's your mind playing tricks on you - not your stomach talking.

Natural Cosmetics Are Better Than Synthetic Products

The term "Natural" has no specific meaning. A product can be called natural even if an ingredient that truly comes from nature makes up only a fraction of the product. Aloe and vitamin E are natural ingredients in some moisturizers, but neither has proved effective as a moisturizer or anti-wrinkle agent.

Moreover, some so called natural substances might even be harmful. The juice in lime slices, for example, can react with sunlight to cause contact dermatitis, and yet many people use limes to try to minimize wrinkling and retain the smoothness of eyelids.

Kitchen cosmetics, in general, are bad for the skin. Cosmetic chemists have things down much better than anyone can hope to accomplish by tossing something in a blender and then smearing it on the face.

Drinking Water During Meals Hinders Digestion

There is no clear evidence that it does so. It's important to drink enough fluids, but not necessarily at meals. The stomach needs water to digest foods, but it draws in what it needs from the rest of the body, temporarily. Also, everything you eat contains water, even meats. Fruits and vegetables are upto 90% water. Drinking liquids with meals is a matter of preference.

Antiperspirants Cause Breast Cancer

The latest internet hoax proposes that blocking underarm sweat causes "toxins" to be retained in the lymph nodes, from which they somehow migrate into the breast and cause cancer. The authors never name these "toxins", and thus cannot present any proof that they might be carcinogens. No evidence links breast cancer to sweating, or antiperspirants. Breast cancer predates antiperspirants by many centuries. Furthermore, there's no ingredient in antiperspirants known to cause cancer.

Feed a Cold, Starve a Fever

Going hungry or overly full will not speed the rate at which you get rid of a cold or reduce a high temperature.

Consciously "starving" a fever is a particularly bad idea. For every one degree rise in body temperature, there is an estimated 7% increase in basal metabolism - the rate at which the body burns calories to carry out basic functions like breathing and pumping blood through the arteries. It's not that the body will end u in a severe calorie deficit after a few days of fever, but consciously withholding food if you're hungry will only make it harder to fight illness.
