An Apple A Day Keeps the Doctor Away
This is an old wives tale many people grew up hearing and believing. A recent study suggest that indeed there is some merit to this old wives tale. Researchers found that the apple is packed with several very important nutrients. The apple is a source for highly potent antioxidants that reduce the risk for certain cancers. Conclusion: True

Drink Eight Glasses of Water Per Day
Researchers now state that there is no real scientific proof that supports drinking eight glasses of water per day keeps you healthy. Their studies also find that drinking too much water might cause health problems in some individuals. Furthermore, most people usually get enough liquids through drinking tea, coffee, juices during the day. Conclusion: False

Cold Weather Causes Colds
You get caught in an awful snow storm in zero temperature and with the wind blowing it feels even colder. When you get home you change into warm clothing, but can't seem to get warm. A few days later you are suffering with the dreaded cold. Well, researchers state that a cold is actually an infection that is transferred to others through a sneeze, cough, or when the infected person touches an object that is later touched by others. Findings show that people are just as likely to pick up a cold in the summer as they are in the winter. Conclusion: False.

Feed A Cold Starve A Fever
Modern researchers discovered that this old wives tale is based on the theory that food is fuel that warms up the body while drinking liquids cools the body down. There is actually merit to this old wives tale. Conclusion: True

Going Outside With Wet Hair Causes Colds
How many times have you heard that you should never go outside with wet hair because you could catch a cold? Once again medical researchers state that a cold is basically an infection that is transferred through sneezing, coughing, or touching objects infected with the cold virus. Conclusion: False
