2.) Chocolate causes Acne

We’ve all heard this one before, since this is a really common myth and some people may still believe it. We were all warned against eating too much chocolate or greasy food or you’ll have a bad case of acne. There have been a lot of scientific studies that prove that there is little to no chance that chocolate or greasy food can cause acne breakouts, but be careful since large quantities of both can cause weight gain.2


3.) Sucking an Open Wound

This one is just a big no-no. Do you know how much bacteria there is in the mouth? Well I’m not exactly sure either, but I know that there sure are a lot. So if you ever get a cut, don’t go putting it in your mouth or anyone else’s because that’s just asking for an infection.3
