Facts that you think as really shocking but not

The most fast and long lived things are rumors especially preposterous ones. I got one mail today morning containing a serious of advices regarding snacks, drinks, some common tablets and even ear buds. I got the same mail a year ago. The mail was forwarded to me by my friend and it contains a hell lot of forward addresses from akkkisdfsf@blabala.com to zurtigk89@gfggkeg.com. Most of the findings in the mail are absurd.
1. Kurkure contains plastic - sounds crazy
Kurkure is one of favorite movie time snack and I really loves it taste. I have been using it for may be more than an year and still I am still alive to write the blog. Plastic is subtance that degrade very slowly.They may persist for even hundreds or thousands of years. How can one use such a thing in a snack? I don’t know who was driven with such crazy thoughts. I have found out from reliable sources that pure plastic is intoxic and will pass through the digestive system
without any ill effect. Even the Kurkure site has clarified that there is no
plastic in kurkure
2. Coke + Mentos => Cyanide the most dangerous invention ever
As per the mail any person consumes Mentos along with Coke or Pepsi will die
immediately because both will react to form Cyanide which is a poisonous salt of hydrocyanic acid. If this was known to Hitler he may have used this for the
Holocaust . Give every one a bottle of Coke and a Mentos - " **dim** " rather than constructing gas chambers worth thousands of German Mark I have heard about the Cola - Mentos experiment which is not a chemical reaction whose byproduct is a dangerous cyanide. This will be an easy way for a sweet suicide.

3. APPY FIZZ contains cancer causing agents
Parle introduced a product called APPY FIZZ in India in 1995.It contains
carbonated apple juice. It can be used as making cocktail basics. I really loved it
.When ever my friends have beer, rum and vodka i relay on APPY FIZZ,its color
resembled some alcoholic beverage .It really tastes good and its one of my
favorite drink. The rumor may be spread by some rival company against the
product .Once you taste it you will also become its fan.
4. 7 Dangerous tablets - visit a super specialty hospital for a headache
Vicks action- 500, Actified, Coldarin, Cosome, Nice, Nimulid, Cetrizet-D are the seven tablets that contains Phenyl- Propanol -Amide.It also stated that these are banned in United States. The truth: First there is no such compound called Phenyl- Propanol -Amide - there is only
Phenylpropanolamine (PPA) which is used in tablets for cough, cold and sinus and other allergy problems.Second:.In the United Kingdom, PPA is available in many of the cough and cold tablets such as in Paracetamol and other pain killers. It has no restriction in UK and no license required to sell in any shop.
5. Buy branded ear buds - 5nos for 50 /-
The ear buds that we buy from road side are recycled or bleached ones .They are cotton used in hospital and using this may cause Herpes Zoster Oticus. Once you hear the name you will become deaf because you may be using the low cost ear buds .
The disease is caused by a virus called varicella-zoster that causes chicken-pox. Our immune system has the ability to eliminate the virus. The disease is not considered an epidemic and no medical journal has established that it caused by the use of ear buds. It ahs been clearly stated that it cannot be transmitted to another person.
Moral: - Don’t blindly believe such nonsensical mails, at least make a look for the true facts. So next time when you receive a mail saying that drinking tea or coffee causes kidney or heart problem don’t simply forward it
