The Fact or Fiction Behind Human Bodies

By Paul Mason

  • Paperback
  • £5.99

Truth or Busted explores the fact or fiction behind stuff you THINK you know about popular everyday topics!

Truth or Busted: Human Bodies takes popular notions and ideas about our bodies and examines where the idea came from, how or why it has become well known, and finally whether it really is true or false. This laugh-out-loud book looks at statements like: 'Sitting too close to the TV will damage your eyes' or 'A human bone is 4 times stronger than concrete'. Each statement is evaluated and then awarded a Truth or Busted stamp at the end of each entry.
