Nutrition/Diet Myths

Could you tell me basic Nutrition myths that people perpetrate/spread? For example stuff like old wives' tale and layman logic. I found one, people tell not to eat curd during cold but it's a myth since eating curd is good for immunity and doesn't cause cold. What are some other myths?

Hello.... Curd don't cause cold... Curd will be usually stored in refrigerator to prevent overfermetation.. So that cold curd should be avoided in cold season... In old practices some are myth some are reasonable. We should accept or reject it only after going in depth of practice.
