My Mum told me if I ate too much toast I would get cancer! I couldn't eat it for years and years...
I used to believe that yucky food such as brussel-sprouts were evil and that they would haunt you after you've eaten them.
When I was little my parents used to make me toast, use cookie cutters to cut it into interesting shapes, and then put butter, jelly, or peanut butter on the shapes...it was easy to make and I was a really finicky kid.
Anyway, one day my mom accidentally put peanut butter *and* butter on a piece of toast - I didn't expect it and I guess I had a weird reaction. My dad asked what was wrong and I told him about the peanut butter-butter combination, and he exclaimed "poison!" Now I realize he just meant that it didn't sound like a particularly appetizing mix, but then I thought he meant it was *actually* poison. I started crying *really* loudly because I thought I was going to die.
me and my brother were playing in the garage once ( i dont remember why) and my dad always put kitty litter on the driveway to cover oil spills, and my brother told me that the used kitty litter was a really cool new type of popcorn, and he pretended to eat it. so i ate at least six handfuls and had to go and get my stomach pumped.

when i was little my mom told me about how diseases spread so whenever I dropped the milk or overflowed the cup i would see the liquid spread. I was always so freakd out whenever it happened i wud run away.
When I was little my dad told me won ton soup was made of monkey brains, It took me a long time to learn the truth. The soup still scares me.
I used to believe that eating too many tomatoes could make you pregnant.

In an effort to keep me out of the vicinity when she was scaling fish, my mother told me that if a fishscale landed on my skin, more would grow until my entire body was covered in scales.
You know those Pop Rocks candy that explodes in your mouth? I thought that they were really rocks so I was scared to eat it.
All the kids in my grade school class used to eat paper to be "cool". Who knows why. Anyway, my Mom told me that if I ate paper, I would have to have surgery on my butt. That scared me out of doing it and I promptly went around and told all the kids what my Mom had told me (since she is a nurse, she knew).
When I was a young tyke my mom's friend took me to a pizza place to eat. The workers there were kneading the dough and, noticing my amazed interest at it, someone gave me a little ball of dough that I made into a little dough pizza. On the car ride home I played with that dough, and finally ate it. We lived in the mountains at the time, and my mom's friend told me that I shouldn't have eaten that, because dough expands at high altitude, and it would expand in my stomach and I would explode. I cried the rest of the way home until he finally admitted he had been joking.
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...
When eating a boiled egg with its shell still on, after I had finished eating the egg, my mum always told me to make a hole in the bottom of the shell so that the witches wouldn't be able to use them as small boats and break into peoples houses and steal things!!!
How bizzare is that!?!
I used to believe that if you ate the holes in swiss cheese, you would get sick. I actually ate around the holes!
my cousin uded to belive that hiccups were caused by the food in your stomach colliding.
