Nutritional myths

A good patient education column, by John Stossel.
1. True or false: If you give a kid sugar, he'll get hyper.

2. True or false: Eat sugar, and your energy may slump.

3. True or false: It's a good idea to drink eight glasses of plain water every day.

With so many myths in our lives, perhaps the surprise is that one of these familiar theories is actually true.
Guess which one. Read the whole thing and put copies in your waiting rooms.
