BMJ debunks seven medical myths.

People get upset when I point out that the medical belief that they hold dear is just a myth. So, for the record, the British Medical Journal agrees that there is no need to drink eight glasses of water each day, fingernails don’t continue to grow after death, shaved hair won’t grow back darker, turkey won’t make you sleepy, and cell phones pose no danger when used in hospitals. It’s not just me saying this stuff.
