4. Sleeping On Your Side Or Stomach
A lot of people find it more comfortable to fall asleep on their side or even on their stomach, but however comfy those positions may be they can cause a lot of issues for your body. When you sleep on your side, you prevent your diaphragm from fully expanding, which can cause breathing problems, back pain. Sleeping on your stomach is even worse, because not only are you limiting the movement of your diaphragm, but you’re also putting a lot of pressure on all of your internal organs. Basically it’s best to sleep on your back.
5. Feeding Birds
It’s not something a lot of us do on the regular basis, but a lot of people do feed pigeons in order to make them sit on their hand and take a cool picture. Well that is actually very dangerous because there’s always a 50% chance that they carry contagious diseases like ornithosis, colibacillosis, tuberculosis, rabbit fever and others. Basically city pigeons are no better than city rats. So stay away from them.
6. Microwaving Popcorn
It’s not that popcorn is bad for you, or that microwaves are evil or anything like that. It’s more about the ingredients in those microwavable popcorn pouches. A lot of the time they include diacetyl, which is a synthetic oil that when heated evaporates, you breathe it in and it damages your lungs. So next time you microwave yourself some popcorn for movie night – wait a little and let your popcorn cool before taking it out of the microwave. It’ll take just a couple of minutes, but your lungs will thank you.
