When people are asked about the things that scare them the most, they will usually list the most common and the most predictable things. But, did you know that you never had a chance to make a list of the things you fear from the all the terrifying things in this world? Here is a list of those that everyone has kept from you.
Brain Eating Amoebas
There are amoebas that are capable of eating your brain and can only be detected on a microscopic level. However, that does not make them any less vicious. These Naegleria fowleri are contracted when you are swimming in lakes or are drinking tap water. If you are anywhere outside North America or Western Europe, you should be safe because evidence of these amoebas has only been discovered in the United States of America and the United Kingdom.
Too Much Water is Fatal
Even though it is not that likely, if you do drink too much, you can easily kill yourself because when the cells are full of H20, they can burst.
Australians Suffer from a Higher Risk of Skin Cancer
It is estimated that 2 out of 3 Aussies will be diagnosed with skin cancer once they reach the age of 70 years old. Now, you might be thinking that you can change those statistics by proper skin care and precaution but sadly, that is not the case. In fact, no amount of SPF is going to reverse this. The truth is that unlike other places, Australia is one continent that does not rely on the ozone to reflect the sun’s UV rays.
There is a Whole Planet of Bacteria in Your Belly Button
An average person has around 1,458 bacteria in their body. These bacteria have non-geographical restrictions and can be from places you may not have ever ventured to.
Tons of Bridges in the U.S. Are Unsafe
The term Fracture Critical given to bridges is scarier than you might think. It does not mean that a bridge has a single fault; it actually is a warning that the slightest break will result in the entire structure of the bridge falling down. If you want to be super safe about this, you should look up the bridges that fall under the Fracture Critical category. Now that you know this and if you live in the U.S., you might be a bit scared when travelling on overpasses.
There are More Dead People in the World
For every person, there are 15 dead people. So, in case of a zombie apocalypse, the odds are not in your favor.
Don’t Let the World Lose all of Its Wheat
You may not know it but you have a hand in this. There is a certain fungus, known as the Ug99, which is powerful enough to infect whole wheat crops. Right now, it is common in a lot of African countries and can easily spread out to different parts of the world fairly fast, that is if you carry the infected crop to other parts of the world. It’s just a mold but its impact is devastating on a large level.
