my dad used to tell me that the meat park of a steak was poisonus for children under the age of 10 to eat and he had to eat that whilst we had to eat the less dangerous white parts i.e. the fat!

We used to call pimento loaf (the one with the green olives in it), "hognose meat". I am not sure why, perhaps the cross-sections of the olives looked like a hog nose, I donno... But anyway, I used to believe that it was really made of hog noses. And now that I know what can actually go into processed meat, I am not so sure I was wrong...

When I was at school, me and all my friends believed that the green bits in crisps were highjly poisonous and the black bits gave you cancer. Not only that but my Mum also told me that if you get a ball of flavouring inside a pack of wotsits and eat it, you'll die!
I believed this for years, and still cant eat crisps, and I'm 30!

My brother told me that if you eat the white bits of pith left when you peel oranges and satsumas, you will die. Even now, it takes me ages to eat an orange as I have to be sure there are no killer white bits.

My friend's mum told him that raw peppers from the chopping board were poisonous and needed to be cooked before he could eat them. He believed this 'til he was 20 and I explained that I would not get ill after stealing the raw peppers from his curry ingredients.
