STICKERS ON FRUITS ARE EDIBLE

PIZZA TIER THAN CEREAL FOR MORNING
Registered dietitian Chelsey Amer conducted a study that proves that a slice of pizza is a more balanced breakfast than cereal because it contains much more Protein and fresh ingredients, and it also has less sugar than cereal. Most of such breakfasts don’t contain enough protein and fats, but they do contain a lot of sugar.
TOMATOES GET TASTELESS IN FRIDGE
New research published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Science shows that the practice of chilling tomatoes below 54°F (12°C) inhibits their ability to generate substances that contribute to aroma and flavor. The cold temperature decreases the functionality of genes that are responsible for the flavor. This is why tomatoes are best stored in a dark room outside the fridge.
LEMONS > STRAWBERRIES IN SUGAR
A strawberry contains 40% sugar while lemon has 30% more sugar content which is almost twice as much. It’s hard to notice that because there is a lot of Nitric acid which makes it taste much sweeter than sour. This huge amount of sugar in lemons can cause obesity if you eat them too often, but it’s unlikely that you will because of the acid.
EGG YOLK > EGG WHITES IN NUTRIENTS
Egg yolk contains all the useful vitamins and minerals necessary for a balanced diet. Of course, egg whites are much better for a diet, but if you need a lot of nutrients, the yolk is your choice. Yes, it contains more cholesterol than whites, but don’t forget that cholesterol is a necessary nutrient for your cells.
BELL PEPPERS > CITRUS FRUITS IN VITAMIN C
One medium-sized bell pepper contains around 0.005 oz of vitamin C which is 1.5 times more than an average orange. Green pepper has less vitamin C — around 0.004 oz, but because people need even less than that a day and bell pepper is good.
CHOCOLATE IS CURE FOR A CHRONIC COUGH

CRACKERS CANDY HARMFUL ON TEETH
We are not going to try to convince you that candy is not harmful to your teeth. But you should know that there are many other products that are much more harmful to your teeth than candy. For example, crackers. The thing is, it’s not the sugar that destroys the teeth – it’s the acid. When crackers stick to the teeth, they create a great environment for acid-producing bacteria.
ENERGY DRINKS = OBESITY + INSOMNIA
Many people believe that energy drinks help them keep going when they are having a difficult day. They do, but not in the long run. The high sugar and caffeine content gives you a slight rush increased by the placebo effect. But a 4-year study carried out by experts from Camilo Jose Cela University (UCJC) showed that energy drinks cause insomnia and nervousness. The scientists evaluated the rush that the drinks give and determined that it boosts your performance by 3% to 7% which is definitely not worth the risks.
