Editorial Reviews

Review

If you can remember motherly advice like “You shouldn’t go out with your hair wet – you’ll catch your death of cold” and “Starve a fever and feed a cold”, then along with many other inherited cures, you’ll be fascinated by a new publication called 101 Common Myths and Misconceptions by Brian Undermann.Ph.D.

Also as a secondary title the book is called 25 Ways To Cure The Hiccups.

On the latter, the author relates to ‘cures’ he had heard which include…Drink Vinegar, Ask Someone To Tickle You, Stand On Your Head While Drinking A Glass Of Water, Rub Your Earlobe, Hang Upside Down, Blow On Your Thumb, Burp, Laugh, Cough, Gargle and many more.

Many other Myths and Misconceptions have been put to the test by the author through extensive research and are proven ‘True’ or ‘False’ during the two hundred and twenty pages.

In an easy to find index, the book has been spit into four sections, Exercise and Fitness, Nutrition, General Health, and Non Health Myths.

Each section posing various queries and facts ‘Swimming after eating a meal is dangerous’, ‘Vitamin C helps prevent colds’, ‘A cut will heal faster if you keep it covered’ and ‘Chocolate is harmful to dogs..and can kill them’. All Truth and False answers follow each myth.

Of the 101 items listed in the book the author has come up with the brilliant idea of testing each true or false myth with the reader, where prior to reading you are asked to deliberate as to whether or not the research could prove to be true or false.

A couple of favourites of mine have to be ‘Having babies listen to Mozart will make them smarter’ ,’Women talk three times as much as men’ and ‘Consistently attending religious services increases life expectancy’.

You’ll be fascinated by many of the answers in this publication and if I dare mention that we’re heading for Christmas, it will be a great stocking filler for someone who thinks they know it all.

Just to give you a taster, you will not catch cold quicker if you go out with wet hair and ‘starving fevers and feeding colds’ is also a myth.

Uncover some of the truths …it’s fascination personnified!.

This book distinguishes between medical fact and myths. Well written and in simple non-medical terms and explanation. Some of mother knows best advise confirmed!

I am not sure if it because I am the daughter of a powerlifter turned nutritionist and personal trainer - but I LOVED this book.

Udermann dispels myths I didn't even know where in me and confirms easy and important actions I can do to be healthier.

This is a fun, light, quick read that guarantees to surprise you with pesky facts instead of family lore. The biggest surprise is when family lore is actually backed up by fact! What?

I hear a second edition is in the works - and I can't wait!

Each "truth" consumes two pages, making it difficult in some cases to substantiate. Readers likely will agree with the rationale presented. Many will be informed.
