Things we’re used to aren’t always as simple as they seem. Some of them are harmful, and others may be downright dangerous.

The first to speak about the harm caused by crossing your legs in was a food complement manufacturing company in 1999. They even launched a large-scale campaign in the US called The Great Cross-Out,which wasn’t just an ad trick: numerous studies confirm that sitting with your legs crossed (on a chair or on the floor) results in hypertension, varicose veins, and nerve damage.
