Medical myths: Dispelling common health misconceptions. evmsmag-5.1-ultrasound‌.  ‌

Like a lingering cough that you just can’t kick, medical myths persist into the 21st century. If your momma told you that you’d catch your death by going out into the cold without a hat and coat, well, it's likely to stick with you. In spite of an abundance of health-related news and the Internet rife with reputable medical sites, these myths continue to be contagious.
