Common health myths: iPhone App, Chewing Gum and Swimming

If you are looking for information on common health myths, you’ll be pleased to know that you can find some answers from the comfort of your own iPhone, in the form of an app which has details on some health myths that have been circulating in the community.

If you are searching for these health myths, you’ve probably been told somewhere that we should drink around eight glasses of water a day in order to stay healthy. This is one of the most common health myths – but do you believe it?

A useful app we’ve found is simply called ‘Health Myths’, and you can download it now from the App store for free. It has been developed by Damien Dematra and lists advice on health myths by one ‘Dr Low’, although whether you choose to believe his answers though is up to you.

Another myth which you may have heard about is the consequences for swallowing chewing gum. They say that if it happens, it will take seven years for it to digest in your stomach, which we think is rather crazy. Onto more serious myths though, and there are fears that reading in low light conditions will make you go blind after time, hard to believe again, but you’ll be amazed how many people get scared about this one.

One myth which is a bit more believable is the fact that you have to wait 30 minutes after eating if you want to go swimming. We’re sure you’ve heard this one before and it is one myth that many people abide by today.
