To answer some of these questions, WUGA Health Desk contributor Lauren Baggett sat down with UGA researcher Grace Bagwell Adams to break down facts versus myth.

Athens Twilight, the yearly Cycling Race and Festival is happening this weekend, WUGA's Colin Vereen spoke with Gene Dixon, Founder and Organizer of the Twilight Criterium and Mary Sigalas of Jazz Athens GA, about Twilight's history and what we have to look forward to at this year's event.
