The Truth about …..

How often have you seen posts in running forums or in the running crankosphere blogosphere, that are headlined with something like “The Truth about….. “. Every time time I read one of those, more often than not it easily debunked pseudoscientific nonsense that people are actually gullible enough to believe.

I only raise this as in my Facebook newsfeed this morning was this meme¹ from Refutations to Anti-Vaccine Memes:
truth about

Obviously nothing to do with running, but the sentiment is the same and really struck a chord with me; ie if there is ‘truth’ in the name, then there is less likely to be truth in the content.

As always, I go where the evidence takes me until convinced otherwise… and anyone proclaiming to speak “the truth”, probably aren’t.
