I'd like a plate of gum, please.

Here's an article on old wives' tales that are not true, despite most of us thinking they are. I have to admit, I did think some of these were very true like the carrots for better eye health myth. If you don't want to read the article, this is a summary of the old wives' tales that just aren't true:

  1. Eating Bread Crusts Will Make Your Hair Curly

  2. Swallowed Gum Takes Seven Years to Digest

  3. If You Pluck a Gray Hair, Two More Will Grow Back in Its Place

  4. Touching Toads Will Give You Warts

  5. Don’t Swim for an Hour After Eating, Or You’ll Cramp Up and Drown

  6. Eat Carrots for Better Eyesight

  7. Chocolate Will Give You Acne
