Being healthy is simpler than we'd like to think.

The truth about behind-the-neck lat pulls actually lies somewhere in the middle.
The myth of strength training stunting growth goes back to a study done in the 1970s on child laborers in Japan.

Stroll by the dairy isle at your local grocery store and you may be bombarded by a colorful array of different Greek or Greek Style yogurts, all claiming to be part of a healthy diet, keep you regular, help you get your calcium, and possibly turn your muffin top into a six-pack within a week. Ok that last one was fake, but it’s just as ridiculous as many of the other claims.
