The ultimate myth-busting collection of quirky and curious facts about your body and health
In 2009, Drs. Aaron E. Carroll and Rachel C. Vreeman explored a wide range of myths and misconceptions about our bodies and health in the media sensation, "Don't Swallow Your Gum ," featured on "The Dr. Oz Show, " CNN, and in "The New York Times, USA Today, "and more.

- Eggs give you high cholesterol.
