What Weird Body Myth Did You Believe Growing Up?

Nope, an apple tree will not grow inside you if you swallow a pip.

Let's face it, everyone believed some really weird stuff growing up.

Paramount

Like that you might ACTUALLY get square eyes from sitting too close to the TV?

Nickelodeon

Or that you could get pregnant from sitting on a toilet seat.

Or that if you swallowed an apple seed, a tree would grow inside you.

And even if you weren't 100% sure it was true, you couldn't be 100% sure it was false, either, right?
