Fun "fact" of the day

I think I'll throw out one of these fun "facts" every week or so, just because it's so funny the things we used to believe. And here we go:

"Fruit should be eaten ripe, raw, fresh and perfect. It should be eaten in moderation. It should be eaten not later than 4 o'clock in the aftenoon. No water, or fluid of any description, should be allowed within an hour after eating fruit."

-The Guide Board to Health, Peace and Competence (1869)

  3. That fact is so funny, its crazy what people used to believe. But in 100 years time people might be looking back on what we think is true now and say the same thing.

  5. That's a pretty funny one. It makes you stop and wonder if the "experts" of our day really know what they're talking about any more than the experts of 1869 did.
