Despite overwhelming scientific evidence, some individuals choose to disregard established theories and cling to unfounded beliefs.
A user asked the forum, “What thing that has been scientifically proven is still denied/disliked by some people?”. Here are the top responses.
MSG IS HEALTHY
“MSG is a delicious and perfectly healthy addition to a number of dishes.”
DIET CAN AFFECT YOUR HORMONES AND MOOD
“That your diet can indeed affect your hormones and mood.”
“The carbon footprint was invented by BP. You know, they guys that inundated the Gulf of Mexico with crude oil a couple of times.
It’s among the first and best disinformation campaigns to this day. It pushed the responsibility of carbon emissions cleanly from corporations to the people.”
MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES
“Mental health issues.
More specifically, mental health IS physical health. The brain can have trauma and other physical things present. People aren’t making it up!”
EXERCISE HELPS YOU OVERCOME LOTS OF STRUGGLES IN LIFE
“That exercise actually helps you overcome a lot, including mental health issues.”
“Evolution. No theory has EVER been proven more correct with so much freaking evidence, but yet here we are.”
“That our current rapidly changing climate is caused by human activity and mainly from a few corporations.
You still get people who deny it. Then you get people who accept it but refuse to go after the main causes.”
“Sugar is way worse than fat.”
YELLING AT KIDS
“Yelling at your kids can have a long-term effect on the child’s mental health. Abuse isn’t just physical, and just cause it’s not physical doesn’t mean it can’t scar someone for life.”
WEED IS ADDICTIVE
“Weed is addictive, and you can get withdrawals from it. Literally just had an argument with a friend over this.”
“Electric cars are not as green as Elon says. They still create pollution from mining & creating the electricity to charge unless from green sources.”
YOU CAN’T BURN A PARTICULAR AREA OF FAT IN YOUR BODY
“You can’t choose where you burn fat when exercising.”
NO NEED TO WASH STORE-BOUGHT CHICKEN
“You don’t have to wash your store-bought chicken, as long as you cook it to temperature. Washing it only spreads raw chicken bacteria in more places in the kitchen. It’s science, and some people will still give a side eye.”
