20 Everyday Things That Are Dangerous To Your Health



Scrub-A-Dub-Dub

While it is nice to have that wonderful clean feeling, daily showering can actually be bad for you. Constant cleaning can slough of the skin’s horny layer and leave a person more susceptible to diseases and illnesses.

Dirty Laundry

E. Coli is a very awful kind of bacteria and one of the most common places to find it is not in tainted meat, but rather in your washing machine. Introduced on your underwear, its important to make sure your knickknacks are washed properly as most cycles don’t kill the bacteria.

Not So Miraculous

Though most people think it is the norm to lay on your back with your legs in the air during childbirth, it actually can make the experience worse. This position, supposedly created for the convenience of doctors, can make labor harder and increase the chance of tearing and is also recommended against by the World Health Organization.

Bad, Bad Brushing

It makes life a lot easier to brush your teeth right after eating instead of letting that residue just sit there and build up, right? Wrong! The acids in food soften the enamel of the teeth making them more sensitive – brushing them in this state can be incredibly destructive. If you feel the need for clean teeth, try brushing before you eat.
