Ever been told that reading in bad light will damage your eyes? Or have you ever noticed that mosquitoes seem to attack some people more than others? Or perhaps you would just really like to know why on earth you should fear Mondays? For the reader of an inquisitive or sceptical bent, "Don't Go to Work on Mondays" lays bare the truth behind the many myths about our health and the world we live in, including: Do tall people live longer than short people? Does celery have negative calories? Why you should never shower in a thunderstorm? Is chocolate really an aphrodisiac? Covering all aspects of health and human nature, including DNA, sex, exercise, food, the environment, germs, medicine, stress, and general wellbeing, "Don't Go to Work on Mondays" is a fascinating look at the truth behind the myths. Did you know...that you're much more likely to have a heart attack on a Monday?
