Doc Talk #163 – Folk Fiction or Folk Fact?

We ask whether some common medical folklore is “folk fact” or “folk fiction” in this show! Is garlic good for the common cold, is honey really good for coughs, does cracking your knuckles cause long term damage, are carrots good for your eyesight does eating fish make you brainy, and is running bad for your knees?

Learn the answers to these and more (and impress your friends with your newfound knowledge) by listening to this this show as Dr Dan and Jamieson take on some common health beliefs and examine the evidence behind them and their historical origins.
