After a decade of helping people understand rhabdomyolysis (rhabdo) and avoid getting it, I've heard a lot of myths about this medical condition. Unfortunately, many people repeat what others have said, without checking the source. This leads to misinformation and pain and suffering by those who develop this medical problem. Previously, I have written about some of these myths but have not addressed it on the podcast. In this episode of the Joe Cannon Health podcast, I answer some of the biggest myths and misunderstandings about this very serious disorder. Leave a comment below if you have any questions.
