Doctor Fact-Checks UberFacts Tweets

UberFacts is a highly popular social media account that posts interesting “facts” across Twitter and other platforms. The problem? They almost never reveal their sources for this information. To make sure everything is on the up and up, I decided to dive into some UberFacts health tweets and research just how accurate these “facts” really are. While lots of these facts are technically “true”, there is a lot more nuance necessary to really understand a lot of them. Today I talked about whether you can actually die from a broken heart, how long it takes the average person to fall asleep, sharing DNA during kisses, cuddling dogs, the speed or a sneeze, blood alcohol levels, pentagon Viagra spending, the effects of caffeine in coffee, the smell of sweat, and the point of our hair. Any other facts you want me to verify? Post them down below!

I LOVE reading your comments and take your suggestions seriously. If there’s a subject you want me to discuss or something you’d like for me to react to, leave a comment down below. Many of my videos have been born out of suggestions directly from you, so don’t hold back!

I often wonder if caffeine has the same effect on people with ADHD. I find that I am only really able to fall asleep with ease while I'm medicated with a stimulant. I thought that I just wasn't able to take naps up until I was finally diagnosed, then BAM, I gets to refresh with a quick 20-30 lay down just like the normies. But the bit about quality of sleep makes me my sleep worse while on stimulants, and I just think it's better because I don't struggle to sleep?

10-20 min in bed to fall asleep… I wish… sometimes I toss and turn for 2-3 hours. I can’t just get up and go do something else because I have to get some sleep because I drive an 80,000 lb semi truck 12 hours a day, 5 days a week. I’ve called in sick before when I don’t get enough ( if any) sleep and I’m not going to risk the lives of others. It’s not worth it and sleeping pills only make me feel really bad… I feel like I’m immune to melatonin… 😓

Flow is also called hyper focus commonly by people with adhd. It supposedly is more common or even a different more extreme version in ppl with adhd. When I was younger I would hyperfocus for about 4-6 hours everyday. Its very helpful for things until you realize its mostly only for stuff you care about and enjoy in a recreational manner

Regarding the caffeine tidbit, Not an addict, just ADHD. Lol I don't drink it much, but if I drink it after lunch or try to use it to stay awake I immediately pass out five minutes later. Same with energy drinks except it's 30 minutes later. I crash super hard with energy drinks. It's honestly horrid cuz I don't remember falling asleep. I just lay my head down at some point and am out like a light.

For me, the coffee thing is kind of true and not true at the same time. Yes, coffee brings me to a normal level after feeling the groggyness, but it certainly stimulates me to above a baseline level for a little while.

I have a question that probably sounds dumb but, from age 13 to about age 22 I had a really intense ice pick headach that was always in the same place. It was so daily consistent that it just became an extremely uncomfortable fact of life. Around age 22 they just suddenly stopped, fir no reason, and I have never had them again. The fact that they used to be so intense and then just suddenly stopped has always worried me. Like, did part of my brain die or somethibg?! Anyone else expierance this?

To anyone who believes in evolution: Evolution is false because spontaneous generation (the idea that living things cane from nonliving things) is important for evolution. Louis Pasteur proved that it was false. And evolution relies on the fact that everything in. our universe arose without God. So if God didn't create the world, then living things would have to come from nonliving things. But that's spontaneous generation!!!!

In school we once made an experiment on bacteria growth, where we took different samples and than let the bacteria grow for some time. We actually had one sample from a toilet seat, and one from someones mouth. The sample from the mouth was really full with bacteria after like 2 weeks, you could see many larger of these white dots that had been formed. But the toilet seat sample was completely full with bacteria, you could only see a white surface, the teacher did not allow us to have a closer look at is because it was so much bacteria in it.

The sleep one I’m actually an expert at. I work for a Mattress company at a higher level. We do millions of dollars on research on sleep. If you have a good mattress suited to your needs you can fall asleep in 5-8 minutes. A decent mattress 10-15 and a mattress not suited is over 20. Add in you’ll wake up on average five times a night from heat, pain, or movement. Not fun. Buy a good bed people. Seriously. Adds years to your life.
