6 Ridiculous Science Myths You Learned in Kindergarten

Everything you learn in Kindergarten has to be true right? According to the article “6 Ridiculous Science Myths You Learned in Kindergarten” this is not entirely true. This article goes over 6 different things you probably learned as a kindergartener and tests those things. The one that I am going to focus on is that milk is good for your bones. Like the article states you have probably been told this since you were little and have been beaten over the head about it. Milk contains the calcium and nutrients every human needs to help build strong bones right? This is a myth according to the article on cracked.com.

The cracked.com article believes that milk does not get you any closer to a healthy body or healthy bones as one may believe it to. The article goes on further to talk about research that was done to prove this point and to prove that the understanding of milk is actually a myth. The writer uses three different scholarly sources to back up their claim:

National School Lunch Program (NSLP)

Calcium, dairy products, and bone health in children and young adults: a reevaluation of the evidence

The dairy debate: Does milk build strong bones?  

I think that this will be an interesting myth to look further into and to test. The reason I think this will be interesting is because I myself have always been told that milk builds strong bones. It will be very surprising to me if this is actually a myth so I think it will be very interesting to do more research on.
