Italian term or phrase: non bevetevi le bufale
This is the title of an article refusing to believe problems with mineral water production. Could it be a light hearted phrase with bufale meaning something ike bullshit - i.e. don't swallow the bullshit? Any suggestions?

Explanation:
Yes, it does mean don't drink the bullshit but I wouldn't use this version as:
A) It means nothing in English
B) IT's not a great idea (or very light hearted) to entitle an article with the word bullshit!
