I was on a Facebook group for the 2019 Run the Year program and someone asked advice for working out with broken ribs. Another person chimed in claiming to be a PT and told her to eat clean (specifically no sugar) and drink bone broth. What is the worst advice you have seen from individuals claiming to have a medical background?

    Physical therapist or personal trainer?

    Good question. I didn't ask. @MelanieCN77 She didn't make medical claims but answered "As a PT"...which made it sound like she was speaking as an expert.

    It pops up on Twitter fairly often these days that keto cures cancer. Sometimes even from people claiming to be doctors.
    That one pretty much takes the cake.

    You mean Oreos. Yes?

    I knew someone that told a guy who was talking about losing his beer belly that he should watch his fruit intake ....yeah that is why he has a beer belly, he was eating too much fruit:(:(

    The fruit was probably fighting the healthy foods he was eating and causing the weight gain.

    Yeah I think you are right;)
