Cold weather does not cause colds!!!

Why is it that some people will not let go of old myths, also known as "wives tales." It is beyond me why old half truths and made up stories still have a strong hold on some people. Here is a list of myths and outright lies that are still strong today:
  • Oil is made up of the bones of dinosaurs. No it is not
  • Colds are caused by exposure to cold weather. No, colds are caused by a virus
  • Too much of a vitamin will cause health problems, not enough vitamins will make you sick. Take your pick on that one
  • Dolphins and whales are fish. Are you kidding me?
So what are your favorite myths and untruths? Comments about politics will not be published since they are all lies.
