Your phone won’t give you cancer and you don’t get the flu from the flu shot

Aaron Carroll is ready to fight the medical myths again. This time it is about the phone and its cancer giving properties, which have not been demonstrated even after 2 decades of studies from around the world.

The refrigerator is not good as a Faraday cage. Here is why.

Mike Colombo, from MAKE Magazine, has tested a rumor about the usage of the fridge as a Faraday cage and he debunked the myth live, on camera. A Faraday cage is a cage specially built out of metal wires interwoven in such a way that the electromagnetic signals cannot reach it’s interior.
