It's no secret that misinformation can spread like wildfire. From rumors whispered in school hallways to viral myths on social media, we are constantly inundated with untruthful and misleading information.
Reddit user u/MelonInACat recently posed the question, "What is a common myth that has been debunked but too many people still believe?" The thread quickly filled with thousands of responses, many of which left my head spinning. Here are some of the most common myths that people continue to swear by:
1. "It's a common myth that dogs see only in black and white. They do see colors, just not as many as we do. They basically just have red/green colorblindness."
12. "A goldfish remembers more than a few seconds/minutes. It's able to remember things from five months ago!"
