15 False Medical Beliefs That Are Still Widely Accepted As True

We hear a lot from our well-wishers about what to do and what not to do to keep ourselves healthy and fit. What if we tell you that they are not always 100% correct? As science continues to progress, it’s becoming evident that many of the long-lived medical beliefs are actually wrong.

Has compiled a list to help you and your loved ones know which health tips are worth following and which are better left in the past.

1. “If you are overweight, you are unhealthy.”

Are you suffering from obesity? The next time you hear this question, you can immediately remove the word “suffering” from it. An overweight person may not necessarily be unfit, so it’s incorrect to assume that an overweight person is suffering.

In a study conducted by Dr. Steven N. Blair and his team, it was established that the death rate of an overweight person who exercises regularly is actually half of the death rate of a person who falls into the normal weight category. BMI (Body Mass Index) is something else to keep in mind when determining whether or not a person’s weight falls into an unhealthy category.
