Description
Information
A glance at the contents page shows that all the best myths are here from the obvious correlation between shoe size and penis size to a debunking of the myth that sugar makes kids hyper (I don't care what they say on that one ...!) or the widely held belief that vaccines cause autism.

The authors, who are medical doctors, debunk typical medical myths - things like eating at night makes you fat, that chewing gum stays in your stomach for 7 years, that taking antibiotics will make the pill work less well, that men think about sex every 7 seconds, or that spinach is particularly full of iron.

Here are some more:

* Myth: The average person swallows 8 spiders per year
* Myth: You should never wake up someone who is sleepwalking
* Myth: You get a hernia from lifting something heavy
* Myth: Short-haired or non-shedding dogs are better for allergies
