There is a lot of health information out there and everyone has a spin on it. Some of it is valid, important, well researched information. Other information is less accurate in their claims. It is an important skill to be able to decipher between what is a fictitious claim and what is accurate.

Then cite a MINIMUM of 5 UNIQUE relevant research articles (no websites) to show why the claim is false. (use Google scholar, or NorQuest Library database)
