What's your favourite health theory that the professionals have told the public?

I mean the things that spokespeople for various professional groups keep throwing out as new and groundbreaking from some study that came out, which then the media pick up and make a big deal out of something that is really old knowledge or not really that important.

My absolute hands down favourite:

A while ago doctors up here in Canada came out with a study on what could possibly prevent newborns from the improper forming of the spine. It turns out that pregnant women should either eat food high in folic acid content or take supplements. It was trumpeted around as a grand new discovery that would prevent this horrible condition that so many babies were being born with!
Funny enough, my mother told me that when she was pregnant some several decades before it was one of the first things her doctor made sure she was doing. How revolutionary.

How about "eat your greens".  or "Go outside and play. It's good for you"

I think mothers have been saying that since the beginning of time. Only now there are studies that say our mothers weren't nagging us just for the sake of it. This stuff is actually true!
