Health Trivia That May Boost Your Health

Trivia is a wonderful distraction. But it can also be handy at times. Look over this collection of health trivia for bits of wisdom that can improve your health and reduce your risks of infection and diseases.

Dentists recommend that you store your toothbrush at least six feet away from the toilet. This reduce risks of airborne particles from flushing coming into contact with your toothbrush.

Sleeping burns more calories than watching TV. If you want to lose weight but aren't in the mood to exercise, snooze instead of turning on the TV.

Moisturize if you are allergic to dust. Why? Most dust particles in your house are made of dead and dried skin cells.

Here's a good reason to wash your pits and dry them well: The skin of the armpits can harbor up to 516,000 bacteria per square inch, while drier areas, such as the forearm, have only about 13,000 bacteria per square inch.

Enjoy your food while you still can. The average human has about 10,000 taste buds located in the tongue, its underside, and insides of the cheek. However, most people lose half of their taste buds, hence, compromising their sense of taste by the time they reach 60.
