Carrots give you night vision. Swimming after eating will give you cramps. You need to drink eight glasses of water a day. Organic food is more nutritious and free of pesticides. Wrong!

It's time to put an end to these alluring myths, misconceptions, and inaccuracies passed down through the ages.

I would urge you to stop posting nutrition articles. They are filled with misinformation -- this one is no exception.

Ditto the prior comment. The information in this article was posted in the Business Insider? - a true fount of accurate health information, no doubt. The sugar industry had to have written the majority of these items although, as you scroll down the page, they never seem to end. I love your blog and have read it for years but this article is about 75% nonsense.
