Patients will do stupid things, lie, and even deny the most WTF stuff. It's kind of sad to think about where we'd be without medical expertise, and it's flabbergasting to see what people think is healthy behavior.

Medical professionals share stories of times they had to explain basic medical knowledge to stupid people.
