4 Common Health and Fitness Urban Myths
I shall begin by explaining what an urban myth is. It’s basically a story or statement that we have read or been taught and so believe it to be true, especially when we see or hear it repeated in or from reliable sources. My favourite example is the belief that the Great Wall of China can be seen from space. I remember being taught this at school and seeing it often listed as a ‘did you know’ fact. However, if you think about it logically, the Great Wall is no wider than a normal road and how many roads can be seen from space!
