When Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry went on one of their very first dates together, Orlando knew they were soulmates. But the reason that tipped him off might surprise you! No, it wasn't that they found out they have the same astrological sign, or wanted to name their future children the same names. It was that they both had a bottle of water filled up with diluted apple cider vinegar.
Not so fast, though...is apple cider vinegar really as amazing as this couple claims? According to, well, medical science, there is some truth to some of them while others are pure hype. That's usually the case when someone, celebrity or not, claims they found a cure-all. Here are some of the biggest claims Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry are making about apple cider vinegar, and whether or not there is truth to them.
- It Can Treat Cancer: Nope, sorry. There is no real scientific evidence for this. File this one under "too good to be true."
- It's good for teeth and skin: Apple Cider Vinegar is extremely acidic, and can damage tooth enamel. That's why it should never be used as a mouthwash or toothpaste. For the same reasons, it can be very tough on skin, so dermatologists don't reccomend using it on skin directly.
- It's good for hair: Diluted vinegar and baking soda is a legitimate hair wash. It may not give you a lather like shampoo, but some find that it leaves hair soft and sillky. Again, it's very acidic, so only use diluted vinegar if you're going to include it in your hair care routine.
