FACT: It can actually be harmful when taken in large doses over long periods of time.

MYTH: If I’m not overweight, I’m not at risk of heart attack.

From AudioFile:

MEDICAL MYTHS THAT CAN KILL YOU is more of a lecture than an audiobook. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but by reading it herself, Snyderman loses the extra zing that a more experienced audiobook performer could have given it. Once again, it's a case of "reading" versus "performing." Snyderman, chief medical editor for NBC News, sounds stiff reading her own work. Because the huge amount of good information contained--for example, it's good to feed a cold but bad to starve a fever--is valuable and too much to remember, it might be better to buy the book in print and keep it on hand for reference. M.S. AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
