Adam’s Fun Facts: The “Root” In Root Beer, M&Ms, Core Body Temperature & More!

What is out real body temperature?  How long does it take to make one M&M?  Where did we get the “ROOT” in root beer?  All that and more with Adam’s Fun Facts:

1. The average human body is 98.2 degrees, not 98.6. We got the number 98.6 from a German study in 1868 that used less accurate thermometers than we have today. (Real Clear Science)

2. There are only two countries in Africa that have never been colonized by a European country: Liberia and Ethiopia. (Stream Africa)

3. Each M&M takes 16 hours to make. (CBS 8 – Knoxville)

4. The “root” in root beer is referring to the root of the sassafras tree . . . which isn’t even used in the modern version of root beer, since it was banned by the FDA for having potentially dangerous chemical compounds. (Wikipedia)
