JAKARTA, NETRALNEWS.COM - Many people know that smoking is not healthy. However, there are habits that are thought to be healthy or not interfere with health, but that are actually are not healthy. Here are some examples. Do you have this habit? Let's refer to these unhealthy habits, as reported by DW.

Holding to sneeze

This causes danger to the respiratory tract, blood vessels and brain. Sneezing aims to remove bacteria, viruses and dust particles. If you hold a sneeze, all things that harm the body remain in the body and have negative consequences.

Sleeping on your stomach

Many people like to do it, and think it does not interfere with health. However, sleeping in this position makes it difficult for people to breathe. Besides, this position causes the neck to be in an unnatural position, and can cause damage to the cervical vertebrae. Moreover, sleeping in this position can interfere blood flow.

Washing hair with hot water

Do you like to take a hot shower? In winter, for example in Germany, this is often done by people. But hot water sprayed to the head can damage blood vessels in the brain. In addition, this ignites the oil glands to function excessively, so the hair becomes dirty sooner.

Touching your face

This is also often considered not a problem. However, touching the face too often with the hands can trigger infections that cause acne and other disorders of the facial skin, since our hands are not always clean.

Licking wounds

People often lick their hands if injured, because they think this will prevent infection wounds. But the opposite is true. The problem is, in our mouth there are more than 600 species of micro-organisms. If people lick wounds, microorganisms will enter the body and spread through blood flow.


What's wrong with doing this? According to studies, the vocal cords become very tense when people whisper. This increases the risk of minor injury to the larynx or voice box.

Chewing gum

Chewing gum helps memory and concentration for work that requires long-term observation. But chewing gum interferes with people's ability to focus on one problem.
