Anyone, even people with heart disease, can eat eggs as it is full of good cholesterol that counteracts the effects of bad cholesterol. So having one egg a day for everyone is a good thing.
2) Fake: Supplements always make you healthier.

3) Fake: Cracking Joints Causes Arthritis
Fact: You may think bones or joints rub together to cause the noise, but that’s not so. It results from a gas bubble that forms between the bones and “pops.” Studies show it doesn’t cause or play a role in arthritis.
