Ladies, we all know that not everything we hear is 100% true. And this comes to stuff we hear all the time about food too!

So today we bring you a list of 7 popular food myths that do the rounds all the time, and are absolutely not true!
This popular myth has been doing the rounds for ages now. It’s true that water works wonders for your body, but too much of it can actually damage your liver and system severely. Not to mention that water molecules are also found in food stuffs and other beverages.
Wrong! Chocolate, in fact, can do wonders for your health. This tasty bar is loaded with antioxidants and endorphins, which is great for battling stress and lifting your mood up. A recent study also showed that daily consumption of cocoa-flavonol-containing dark chocolate can lower cholesterol and improve blood pressure. The next time someone tells you that eating chocolate is bad for you, tell them to read this.
Poor diet, irregular exercise, genetics and a lethargic lifestyle causes type 1 diabetes - sugar is not the cause of it. However, including the ingredient in all your food stuffs can increase the risk of getting it, so caution is advised!
Fruits here are the real deal! Unlike in packaged/canned juices, there’s no added fats, sugar or preservatives, to keep it fresh. These juices are often adulterated and contain very less fruit pulp. If you're a juice person, we recommend you consume fresh juice. Make your own at home!
Don’t pay heed to myths just because they are popular, ladies. Research your food, and accordingly take a call on what’s healthy and what's not. Eat safe, eat wise!
