6 summer myths that we never knew if they are true

Are these things that you told us all our lives real?

As we are

The summer season brings its own customs and, with them, its great myths. You want to know if everything we've been told from kids is true?

 Myth 1: After eating, you have to wait two hours to get into the water.  

True (though a little exaggerated). Cold water does not help digestion to be done correctly. However, waiting for an hour is enough and plenty!

 Myth 2: Water bites calm down with pee. 

False. Luckily, this myth is not real. If you are itchy by a water water, it is best to apply sea water and vinegar to reduce irritation.

 Myth 3: If you mix wine with watermelon, you die! 

False. Fatalistic myth if any, the reality is that absolutely nothing happens if we consume them simultaneously.

 Myth 4: If a toad pees on you, you go blind. 

False. Continuing on the eschatological route, our vision is not at risk if one of these animals urinates on top of us.

 Myth 5: Toothpaste is good for bites. 

True. Toothpaste components can reduce inflammation caused by insect bites.
