The famous saying says that curiosity kills the cat. Yet, curiosity is something very synonymous with the human nature. We should not avoid curiosity as it does not always lead to negativity. Throughout the history, curiosity has uncovered an abundance of life-enhancing discoveries, such as Newton’s law of gravity, Edison’s magnificent discovery of light bulbs and the Wright’s brothers laborious work in inventing, building and also flying the first ever aeroplane which has become one of the important means of transportation in the world. Having said that, at times curiosity does negatively affect someone at a personal or larger scale. Many major companies or established brands have faced conspiracy and unsettling rumors about their products, which most of the time revealed to be baseless and lacks truth in the statement.
For example, the color code that is printed at the end of your toothpaste tube, misleading rumors have been circulating on what this color code really mean. There are four colors within the code that are printed differently on toothpaste tube if you paid attention to the minor details while brushing your teeth. These colors are green, blue, red, and black. According to the rumors on the Internet, each of these colors indicates the specific content that is present in the toothpaste we use daily. Allegedly, it is said that each of these colors represents the number and the level of chemicals inside the toothpaste! Here is the list:
Green = 100% natural toothpaste.
Blue = natural ingredients mixed with medicine
Red = natural mixed with some chemicals
Black = 100% chemical
Speculations are running rampant on the Internet and despite there is no hard evidence supporting the claims, people are actually buying this sort of stories.
After further investigation, these speculations that have caused panic among consumers was proven to be a hoax! It is later revealed that this color code is actually for manufacturing purposes. The color code is called color marks, printed marks or eye marks. These marks facilitate the manufacturing and boxing of these products. The machines read these color marks as an indication where exactly to cut or to box the product without damaging it. In conclusion, the story that is spreading throughout the internet is nothing but a false alarm.
Overall, there is no affiliation between the number of chemicals within a toothpaste with the color code that is printed on the toothpaste tube, this is merely a baseless speculation that is spreading online.
