Word of mouth is a very powerful thing. Whether it be spreading lies or spreading the truth, people tend to believe whatever they hear.
Because of this, a lot of false information has been spread, which has resulted in unnecessary anxiety for many people.
There are many common myths that people simply assume to be true.
From "only using 10 percent of our brain" (we don't use every part of our brain at all times, but science proves that people use most parts of their brain throughout the day), to there being "a dark side of the moon" (just because one side of the moon is shielded from the Earth, it doesn't mean that it is shielded from the light of the sun), not everything we as humans hear is guaranteed to be 100 percent accurate.
The myths don't stop there.
Sugar doesn't make us hyper (the fact that people are typically in an exciting environment when sugar is consumed results in becoming hyper), and gum doesn't take seven years for your stomach to digest (other than the small amount of sweetener and flavors, there isn't anything in gum to be digested).
While we could go on and on, the point is, there are plenty of concepts that we incorrectly assume to be 100 percent true.
There is no topic where this is more apparent than air travel. Read on to learn about the many misconceptions that have developed over the years.
