My parents used to tell my siblings and I that we had the "same germs" because we are related. I was a teenager before I realized that they just wanted us to share our food.

When I was about 4, I met one of my parent's friends who happened to be an old lady who wore false teeth. She had made meatballs for dinner and for some reason she took out her teeth and told me that she had lost all her real ones from eating too many meatballs. For years not one meatball touched my mouth.

when I was little i used to believe that there were two kinds of mushrums good and bad i got this idea from my sister who played the mario games (thats where it came from) so i believed that if you ate bad mushrums you would shrink and if you ate good mushrums you would grow this was an observation i made when i saw my grampa eating darker mushrums (bad) and my mom always said he was shrinking then my dad ate white ones (good) and he was big and strong so it made sense but thats not it you see whenever we had some dish with mushrums and they were dark I was horribly scared that if i ate them i would shrink and I thought when i wasn't looking at them they would come closer to me and follow me and try to get in my mouth!!! so i would always offer mine to my sister and try to trick her into eating them and i would never leave the table this belief was proven wrong when i was at a party and they ordered pizza and i made the dumb suggestion to take the mushrums off because you shrink when you eat them and i did everything i could to try and prove it i got everyone to turn around then quickly look to see if the mushrums had moved this was at the age of 12 LOL They made fun of me ever since.

Snakes in the bread!! One time I opened a loaf of bread and there was a hole that went through a couple of slices, about dime size "air holes"..my older brother told me there was a snake in the bread...I didnt eat it and would not go near any holy bread for years!!

My mom used to make stir fry a lot and always used a large amount of green peppers. My sister told me that if i didn't eat every pepper the ones in my stomach would turn to snakes. It made sense at the time and I still have a hard time leaving any green peppers uneaten.

When I was little, my dad was reading the ingredients list of a Dr Pepper to my brother, when he got to where it said "phosphoric acid", I got scared and thought there was acid in Dr Pepper. I stopped drinking it for years, because I believed it would melt your stomach.

As a kid my brother and I used to put salt on our watermelon (tasted really good for some reason). He told me that if I put too much on I would die so I'd always ask him if I had too much every time I ate it.

My grandma told me when I was about 2 or 3 that if I ate the holes on a donut I would be sick because our stomach cannot handle "nothing". I still eat de outside of the donut first.

When I was young and my mom would be cooking a dinner consisting of pork chops I would ask what's for dinner and of course she'd say pork chops. But one time before she took them out of the package i read the label, it said Pork Loin Chops. I misconstrued the middle word to be Lion (like the beast in africa). I thought hmmm i guess mom wont tell me this meat is from a lion because me and my brothers (younger than i) would never eat such a thing. I thought this for a really long time and whenever mom would say we're having pork chops I'd kinda wink like i knew the inside secret that we couldn't let the younger ones know about.

When I was about 4 or 5, I had (and for some reason loved) a children's book about Louis Pasteur, which had illustrations of rabid dogs with white foam all around their mouths. One day, a family friend served me some blueberry pancakes with blueberries for eyes and a whipped cream smile, and I FLIPPED OUT. I cried softly at the table and when everyone asked me what was wrong, I told them that I couldn't eat my pancakes because they had rabies.

When I was about 6 or 7, my uncle told me Wonder bread was poisonous to children and I should only eat wheat bread. I didn't like wheat bread and I figured any other brand of white bread was safe so I ate that. I still don't buy Wonder bread, and I'm 33 now. Thanks Uncle Jim. :-P

I was very afraid of Cubs Foods' bright orange label strip with little black pictures of grocery bags that people label on milks, pops, cat littler and anything big. I thought it was a picture of monster and everything that were labeled with that strip were possessed by food monsters and make you turn bad if you ate those possessed foods. Years later I looked at these strips again and they turned out to be just a picture of stupid grocery bag.

When I was 8, my 12 year old sister thought it would be funny to tell me that the citric "acid" in orange juice would burn my skin off if it touched me. Of course I believed her and made sure not to get any ot it on my lips as I drank it. Then she started to spit it on me and laughed as I was hysterically crying! I stayed far away from orange juice for a long, long time.

My mother once told me that it's really bad to eat apples without washing them first. It was this small, innocent fact that lead me to believe that all unwashed apples were...POISON (Gasps, scary music, lightning plays here). Anyway, one day, I had a friend over, and she was eating an apple (unfortunately, an unwashed one of coarse)And she was about to bite it when I said, "No!! Don't eat it!!" It was so embarrasing...
