This is perhaps the most stupid of all the stupid misconceptions imposed by pop culture. All plant foods are a source of carbohydrates.

A variety of foods — from lentils to lollipops, from beans to marmalade, from hazelnuts to donuts — are sources of carbohydrates. Most plants are almost entirely composed of these substances. If carbohydrates are evil, then so are vegetables, fruits, whole grains, legumes, nuts and seeds.

There can be no healthy food without carbohydrates!

Harmless paracetamol is deadly

Paracetamol is one of the most common analgesics and antipyretics in the world, having an anti–inflammatory, antipyretic and analgesic effect. The availability and low cost of paracetamol often provokes an overdose of this drug in all categories of the population.

Many people treat colds without observing the dosage and compatibility of antipyretic and antipruritic agents.

In addition, people are poorly oriented in the purpose of medicines, very often, along with medications for lowering the temperature, they also take complex medications. At the same time, they do not know that paracetamol has a very low safety bar.

And paracetamol causes liver failure. And pregnant women will have to refrain from taking paracetamol, since it can disrupt the development of the fetus.
