Continuing with the topic of the last post, Dr. Hepburn and Dr. Sealey keep demystifying some beliefs of the medical world. In this post they will try to educate us about some things that we have believed for a long time that affect our health despite the fact that various studies indicate that it is not true.
The first myth is about chocolate and junk food. It has always been thought that these two foods cause acne which is false according to Dr. Sealey. In his own words “acne is due to hormones which is a whole different problem bacteria as well. So go ahead and eat as much chocolate and junk food. You’re not going to end up with a pizza face it’s not going to happen”
On the other hand, Dr. David Hepburn clarifies that despite popular belief that shingles is contagious. This absolutely not true, Dr. David Hepburn explains that “shingles is not contagious shingling is obviously not contagious shingles is a painful lesion that comes initially from the chicken pox virus and you tend to get as and you tend to get as you get older it breaks out in blisters but those blisters are not contagious. You can´t catch shingles from somebody who has shingles so that means you can just sidle right up to a men and not worry about catching it”
Another myth mentioned by Drs. Hepburn and Sealey was about aluminum and its relationship with Alzheimer’s. According to the myth cooking with aluminum pots and pans increases the risk of having Alzheimer’s but this is false. While it is true that in the brains of people with Alzheimer’s was found 30 times more aluminum than in a person without this disease the truth is that several studies have proven that the aluminum does not come from the pots used for cooking therefore this it is a myth.
The third myth is about vaccines. Dr. David Frederick Hepburn pointed out that it is completely false that vaccines cause autism. “It has been proven that there is no relationship. Vaccines do not cause autism.”
Finally Doctors spoke about spicy food. It is false that spicy food causes ulcers. So you know, you can eat a lot of spicy without worrying about an ulcer
