Health Hoaxes

As always when using the internet, it is wise to be careful of sites that look too good to be true. Especially when dealing with health topics, one should be cautious. There are so many falsities that parade as truths. To lay them to rest, or if you are not sure if something is fact or fiction, try visiting the following website:

Urban Legends Reference Pages (http://www.snopes.com): Always check here first, since it’s nicely organized for browsing and searching. Links on the front page will take you to the newest and the hottest “legends.” For each tale, you’ll learn where it came from (if possible) whether it is true, false, or undetermined/ambiguous.

More sites to check? Yes, and they will be mentioned in the next few days.
