My neighbors belief:
My neighbor's mother and father used to tell her, her two sisters, and her brother that pork was a dirty meat. I'm not really sure why they think that, but to this day not one of them has touched a piece of pork. My neighbor won't even let her husband or 2 boys eat pork.

i used to believe that a kiwi fruit was a genetically modified fruit made from melon and banana (the banana being the middle). why? because my best friend told me so, so i believed her, and would never eat it after that... or until I discovered that it was a joke, and then discovered that I am illergic to kiwi fruit!

when i was younger, i used to eat the top ramen noodles dry / without cooking them. my mom always told me to stop because it was bad for me, but i never listened. one day, she sat me down and looked at me very serious and told me that my doctor called and said i had worms in my stomach and it was caused from eating dry noodles....she said the doctor told her that stomach acid and dry noodles turns them into worms. i can't stand the site of top ramen noodles to this day!
When I was younger I heard a song and one of the lines in it went "Starting over, cold turkey". I had never heard the expression 'cold turkey' before so I thought it was saying the person was starting a 'new life' and had no job at the time and could only afford cold turkey as food..
