We all understand that it is harmful to cross the street without looking in front of it on both sides, or ingest chemicals that people are usually under the kitchen sink. Nevertheless, there is still a lot of things at first glance, quite harmless, but, nevertheless, carrying us obvious harm. Many of them we can do consistently.
Wake up alarm clock
Many people wake up every morning alarm clock to have time to work or study, and get enough sleep on the weekend for the whole week. But according to researchers, it is the bad habits: many people the amount of sleep on weekdays and weekends too different. According to experts, such a violation of natural circadian rhythms makes people weaker and increases the risk of obesity.
A study in Japan showed that the effect could be not only a violation of the circadian rhythm - abrupt awakening hurts more and heart. When the alarm clock waking blood pressure rises, do you immediately find yourself in a "state of alert" that the organism is not too good.
If you really need to wake up early and go to bed early for some reason is not possible, to maintain good health even more useful to find a way to wake up slowly.
Flip Flops - a very popular summer footwear, primarily because they are comfortable, breathable and usually cheap. The bitter truth is that the Vietnamese "kill" legs.
For a start, thongs flip flops tend to pass between the toes that can cause painful blisters and cuts. But most doctors are concerned that while walking legs flip flops do not provide adequate support.
Flip Flops for the most part are ordinary piece of rubber in the shape of a foot, plus a few straps to keep your feet. At the same time these shoes are not bends in the right places, and the cheapest models do not bend at all.
The position that the feet have to take while walking to flip-flops are not flew, not too helpful: Orthopedists warn that constant wearing flip flops bad for your posture, so that the flip-flops in the end can lead to various pains in the joints and other related problems.

Most of the subjects exercise regularly, but also quite a lot of sitting.
Some researchers also noted that the risk of cardiovascular disease is subject to anyone who leads a sedentary lifestyle. All parts of the body should always be used to staying healthy: the more time you are inactive, the worse for your heart.
Often take a shower
Many people wash every day, sometimes several times - in today's society there is a perception that it is useful. Of course, we do not mean that you can not wash at all, but modern science has shown that frequent soaping the body and dousing it with water is not too good for the body.

Wearing a backpack
Generations of schoolchildren are in school textbooks and school supplies in a backpack. Many children wear a backpack in kindergarten and, figuratively speaking, are not removed until the end of school.

Wear sunglasses cheap

As a rule, when you look at a bright light, the eye screw up one's eyes to protect themselves, and if you are wearing glasses, the eyes open and allow light to act on them. Cheap sunglasses are not normal protective coating, and thus not only protect from the sun, but also allow them to work freely on the eye.
Some cheap sunglasses claim to be high quality, but the studies were conducted: none glasses, which you can buy on the market at bargain prices, does not inspire confidence.

To candles less harmful, the researchers propose to ventilate the room, as well as to use them as little as possible - so be able to reduce the amount of toxic fumes to a minimum.
Rice - the most common food: eating it throughout the world, so the idea that rice can be harmful, at first glance seems quite absurd. Source of the problem is at the molecular level is harmful not the rice, pesticides and fertilizer for its cultivation.
