- Do you believe that hair and fingernails grow after death?
- Do you think that humans use only 10 percent of their brains?
- Do you believe eating turkey makes you drowsy?

Shaved hair grows back faster, thicker and darker
Reading in dim light ruins your eyesight
Mobile phones are dangerous in hospitals
