Myths and Legends

Having already lived through the endless advice of what is good or bad for us ( margarine v butter - too numerous to mention ), I was intrigued to hear the other day that flossing teeth is .......well, not exactly useless but has no benefits whatsoever.

Anyone has a particular favourite myth ?
