You have probably seen these scenes in movies so many times that you have, like many others, considered them to be true. Well, it is the movies after all and what you see is designed to get you hooked, rather than to let you know the actual facts. Take a look at these 8 myths you thought were true:
8. Chloroform does not make you stay unconscious for hours
It is a common movie scene where criminals knock its victims out with chloroform to remain unconscious for hours. However, in reality, science has not proven such drama like effect can actually happen. Chloroform is a good anesthetic, but it may take a lot of effort in real times to make someone go totally unconscious. To achieve that level of unconsciousness as shown in movies, you have to let your victim inhale for five minutes or more to get knocked out and remain so for hours. The chances are still very low.
