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!

Caffeine makes me sleepy because I have ADHD lol. On a related note, I know he will probably not see this but I was wondering how much caffeine (if any) is okay for me to have with my ADHD medication (Adderall) I like to drink coffee but I need to take my medication. Do I give up on the coffee or is there an amount that's okay for me to drink with it?

"Most people fall asleep within 10-20 minutes" me: a child who never played video games or watched tv or played on a phone/tablet/computer when going to bed (at 10-11pm) but always ended up laying in bed awake staring at the ceiling when trying to sleep until atleast 1-3am Also fun fact I accidentally fooled my sleep study doctor into thinking I was asleep over an hour earlier than I actually was all because I tried to regulate my breathing and heartbeat to match that of a normal sleeping person because if I don't get enough oxygen to my brain I could become tired and cause myself to fall asleep (this sadly didnt work and I had to explain to the doctors the next morning that the only reason it seemed like I fell asleep quickly is because of this. 😅😂

Quick question about caffeine, is there such thing as caffeine immunity where the human body is immune to the amount of caffeine that u consume per day to the point you need to drink more caffeine to get the effects and if so, can that be problematic? I only ask cause I might have an addiction to caffeine... Mainly Mountain dew

Fun fact: the term "takotsubo" comes from Japanese and it actually means a trap that is used to catch octopuses. The term is used to describe the effects of a "heartbreak" because a emotionally significant trauma changes the shape of your heart so, that it's a bit wider at the bottom, therefore resembling an actual takotsubo.
