Overview
Exploring the histories behind 100 scientific myths with clear and simple language, this book separates scientific truth from fictitious invention. Since every myth is based on some truth, the goal is to discover at which point the facts were altered by imagination and how much of the myth is true. Among the myths explored are the beliefs that human beings use only 10 percent of their brains, that there are more births during a full moon, that ostriches bury their heads in the ground, and that water drains in the opposite direction in the southern hemisphere. "Explorando las historias detras de 100 mitos cientificos con un lenguaje claro y simple, este libro separa la verdad cientifica de la invencion ficticia. Ya que todo mito esta basado en alguna verdad, la meta es mas bien descubrir en que punto los hechos fueron alterados por la imaginacion y cuanto del mito actual es cierto. Entre los mitos explorados se encuentran las creencias de que los humanos solo usan 10 por ciento del cerebro, que en luna llena nacen mas criaturas, que los avestruces esconden la cabeza bajo tierra y que el agua de la pila gira al reves en el hemisferio sur."
