Some Popular “Healthy” Habits May Actually Cause Harm.

Business Insider (11/29, Praderio) states that over time, “myths and misinformation have given rise to a swath of ‘healthy’ habits that are popular but not actually backed up by science,” and some of these habits may “actually backfire and harm your body.” The article lists 17 of these habits, including brushing teeth immediately after eating. The article reports “the American Dental Association (ADA) says you should wait at least 30 minutes to brush after eating, especially if you had something acidic.” The list also includes drinking lemon water each day. The article explains that although “Pinterest posts tout the ‘benefits’ of lemon water,” it can’t actually do most of what these posts claim, such as detoxing and balancing pH levels. The article adds that lemon water can also erode enamel, according to the ADA.
