Due to this false information, people are not able to enjoy these foods as they want.
Our article going to inform you about different popular food facts that turned out to be myths, according to the scientific point of view.
Myth 1: We shouldn’t drink coffee in the night for sleep well.
Truth: Body of every person act differently for stimulating caffeine effects. Stimulation of the caffeine depends on CYP1A2 gene. This gene is responsible for caffeine metabolism. This gene produces enzymes into 3 forms: high, regular, and low sensitivity to caffeine. So we can say like every individual body has different-different sensitive level towards caffeine. Researchers are suggested that largest group of people are liked with regular, this group is not recommended to drink coffee 6 or fewer hours before going to bed. People with high sensitivity may experience insomnia even if they drink coffee in the morning. But people who belong to the low sensitivity of caffeine could drink a cup of coffee right before bedtime and it won’t affect sleep.
Myth 2: Eating fat makes you fat
Truth: Even though avocados, walnuts, olive oil, and other healthy fats are full of body-boosting benefits, there’s still this weird fear that eating fat is going to make you fat, even though it’s a total myth. It is suggested by science when you increase your healthy fat intake and lower your intake of refined, white carbohydrates, you’ll stay satiated longer, stabilize your blood sugar, and teach your body to burn off extra body fat, rather than rely on quick bursts of carbs, sugar, and glucose for energy.”
Myth #3: Honey is not safe for health after heated
Truth: It is believed that honey should never to be used heated directly or indirectly, internally is it develops toxicity when heat.
Hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) is contained in all types of honey. It’s true that its concentration increases if we cook this, HMF is contained in many foods in much larger quantities than in honey and, there are no studies that prove HMF is dangerous for humans. 30 mg of HMF a day is absolutely safe but we bet you won’t be able to eat that much honey.
