WATCH: 7 Popular Myths You Probably Still Believe

Myths are simply facts that no one has bothered to subject to check up on. Sometimes, like the whole thing about drinking eight glasses of water a day for good health, they are routinely debunked and yet persist generation after generation.

This often happens simply because, while a large number of people come to know about it, there's a larger number out there who don't have access to the same information and are reliant on outdated sources.

Fortunately, the beauty of the Internet is it will find any way it can to time and again remind that everything you know is wrong (and that's why we love it, don't we?). In this video are seven popular myths that everyone assumes to be true, but... well, you know what we're getting at.

Watch the video above.
