Have you been given any ridiculous health & beauty tips?

My wonderful Grandad was convinced that boiled cabbage water could cure all ailments and that it was the key to his head full of glossy hair!

He also insisted that to get rid of a mole, all I had to do was dab Dettol (neat Dettol!) on it for a few days…needless to say it didn’t work and was actually quite painful!

What about that old ‘100 brush strokes before bed = shinier, healthier hair' myth? I don't know about you, but if I did that, I'd just end up with greasy hair and an arm ache!

‘An apple a day keeps the doctor at bay.' If only it was that simple…

Can you think of any more?
