5. Artificial Coloring
At what point is really necessary to have our food look a certain color? Is it really worth eating bugs in some cases? If most of of these artificial food colors were given to rats with bad results, why are they giving them to humans? Food manufacturers use rough 15 million pounds of artificial coloring in our food each year and more often in children’s food. In some european union countries, artificial colorings are often more noticeably labeled about the health concerns from these colorings. When you buy some skittles and eat the red ones, your ingesting a coloring known cochineal which is basically grounded up beetles. It’s also been used to dye clothing. Other food coloring in high enough doses caused tumors in mice like Blue #1, Red 3, and others.
4. Converse Holes
They’re some of the oldest shoes that never seem to go out of style. But what parts of it might you not understand? What are purposes of the two holes on the side of the shoes? There is apparently a reason they do this and it’s not just for looks! You can actually loop the shoe string through the holes to make the fit a little bit tighter but your might feel the lace against your feet slightly. You just have to unlace the two holes at the top and then try sticking them through these hidden holes.
3. Pen Cap Prevention
The closer you look at the pen cap, the more likely you are to realize that there’s a little hole at the top of the cap. You might have just thought it was part of the design but think again! With most companies including bic, there’s the hole at the top since the caps are percieved choking hazards. In the case the cap ends up in your windpipe, air can still reach your lungs thanks to these little holes.
