Adam then presents a segment on whether or not you should drink while eating. Elan closes out the show by answering if the coloured square on the bottom of a toothpaste tube indicates the composition of the toothpaste.

    I had actually never heard this one until recently when I co-worker told me that she doesn’t drink during meals because it ‘dilutes’ vitamins in her food. Glad to hear that it’s all a myth… can’t believe how many articles on Google come up saying this is true though!
