ABC News Specials Myths, Lies and Downright Stupidity: Parts 1 & 2
In part 1, John Stossel takes a look at several popular beliefs: Getting cold will give you a cold; money can buy happiness; chemicals are killing us; we're drowning in garbage. None of it is true. For example, scientists say that people get sick in winter, not because they're cold, but because they spend more time indoors spreading viruses back and forth. Research shows that more money makes people significantly happier only if their family income is below $30,000; after $50,000 money makes no difference. These and more myths are answered when John Stossel puts conventional wisdom to the test in "Myths, Lies and Downright Stupidity." In part 2, John Stossel takes a look at several popular beliefs: Is it true that strange things happen when the moon is full? Are SUVs safer to drive than cars? Should you avoid swimming after eating? John Stossel puts conventional wisdom to the test in "Myths, Lies and Downright Stupidity."

Critics may try to dispute the facts and Stossel's sources. This video is a good source to students to understand critical thinking. I highly recommend this video for teachers and parents. Very educational and MAKES you do some THINKING about comments and ideas others want you to believe is true.
Stossel did an ABC special years ago called Junk Science, too bad I don't see that dvd available. That video shows you how science can be manipulated to convince people they are right.
