The Most Deadly Health Myth

May 27, 20159 min
You might be putting yourself in danger without even realizing it.With breaking health headlines constantly being busted, you might be concerned as to whether or not you can trust what you've always been told.For example, research has shown that "bad foods" such as chocolate, eggs, salt, coffee, and tea have turned out to be health foods and recommended in order to improve your longevity.On the flip side, many recommended health tests such as prostate, pap tests and mammograms have been shown to cause more harm than good.However, one health myth that may come as a surprise is the use of medications.Over 200,000 Americans die needlessly each year from the side effect of medications, including 30,000 to 50,000 from ibuprofen-related arthritis medications alone. The first thing you might tend to do when you're not feeling well is to pop an anti-inflammatory. But, research shows that sticking to natural remedies is more effective, costs less, and can be much safer.Listen in as Jacob Teitelbaum, MD, discusses the number-one health myth, how you can avoid unnecessary side effects, and natural remedies that you can use to address your health concerns instead.
