We've heard the sayings, "feed a cold, starve a fever" or "an apple a day keeps the doctor away." Sometimes, whether we truly believe it or not, we put such advice to use in our attempts to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

But is there any truth behind these health myths?

Our new Health Myth Center will help you separate fact from fiction by providing you with evidence both for and against a variety of health claims circulating society today.
