Here at the DR, our beat is the world of finance and everything that goes along with it. As we often point out, there's a certain 'crowd mentality' that happens when people (mainly the mainstream press) talks about the economy. For example, if Bernanke says the recession is over, most people are going to believe it without thinking of questioning his reasoning.
The same is true in the world of medicine. And while this is not our area of expertise, our old friend Dr. William Campbell Douglass II has it covered. According to him, "mass media medicine" is ruining your health - and the '8 glasses of water a day' myth is just the tip of the iceberg.
