"Chicken eggs that float are rotten." No, they may or may not be, but they're floating because they've been around long enough for some of the liquid to evaporate thru the permeable shell.

The 5, 10, 20, or more pounds of undigested meat that is in every non-vegetarians colon. Sometimes it comes up in terms of the above mentioned juice cleanses. Just think about the volume that even five pounds of meat takes up. There is no way I would be unaware of carrying 20 pounds around with me.

If food has that little organic certification on it that means no pesticides were used growing it. There's actually a list of approved natural pesticides for the US certification. Some of that list, like Rotenone and Azadirachtin, are worse than most of their non-naturally occurring competitors.

Eating after some time at night (or within so many hours of bed time) makes the food all turn to fat. It doesn't.

Why would you want to do that? It is another myth that perfectly sanitary food is better for you. You want a bit of grot on your food, to keep your immune system in practice (that is assuming you do not have an autoimmune disease). This is why picnic food is always better. Nothing like a little yellow jacket crap on your potato salad.

There is a bit of truth to this, at least if you use Coca-Cola. Try it! We did in a junior high science class (with a baby tooth thoughtfully donated by someone who's younger sibling had lost one recently) and while the tooth did not "dissolve" in the sense of completely disintegrating, after a day or two a lot of enamel had come off and the structural integrity of the tooth seemed doubtful.

That, and something "all-natural" like lemon juice would probably do the same thing.

After some research: Lemon juice has a pH of 2, whereas Coca-Cola Classic has a pH of 2.50 (and lemon juice a pH of 2.29, which is exactly the same as the previous reference accounting for differences in precision).

So, yes, lemon juice would not only do the same thing, it would do it better and faster than Coca-Cola.

There may be a small grain of truth to that. And I've encountered hot drinks in hot climates fairly commonly. Indians, in particularly, seemed to be very fond of that. Found the same in Central Asia.

That's not entirely a myth. Green bananas can be over 50% resistant starch, most of which is undigestable and passes to the bowel, where it is consumed by the gut biota. Their waste products include methane and carbon dioxide, explaining the rumbling tummies.

Interestingly, the gut biota that relies on soluble fiber/resistant starch has become been the focus of recent research. It may very well be that deliberately cultivating and feeding said gut biota with resistant starch may lead to better health outcomes (lower insulin resistance, less bowel inflammation, etc).

Furthermore, I had a girlfriend who was deadly serious about not microwaving anything plastic, because it would leech into your food and kill you. The same girlfriend who told me teflon was poisonous and our flaking teflon pans were killing us. (It's inert and harmless, though by the time the teflon flakes off, the pan is basically worthless and should be replaced.)

Did anybody tell you as a kid that watching too much TV would "fry your eyes like bacon"? Bacon eyes sounded cool though and I always kind of wanted them. Mmm, bacon eyes!

I might be misunderstanding this one. A cup of Special K has 23g of carbs, of which 4g are sugars. Eight ounces of Coke has 26g of carbs, of which 26g are sugars. I admit my understanding of the distinction between "carbs" and "sugars" is hazy at best. Are you saying, essentially, carbs is carbs?

Warm bread will give you a stomach ache. This was my mother in her attempts to keep my father and I from butchering her fresh-baked loaves.

Eating raw cookie dough will give you worms. Really, mom? Sugar, butter, flour and egg will give me worms? Salmonella, maybe.

OK. Still confessing my ignorance here. Is that nutritionally equivalent to taking a nice long sip of corn syrup?

A cup of Special K only weighs 31 grams (about one ounce).

The one I have is pretty bizarre; that if you give food to someone who hasn't eaten in a while and don't give them anything to drink, it will probably kill them. My mom was fond of this idea, and even claimed a relative inadvertantly killed someone this way.

Or from bologna, but in both cases, it's not a typical thing by any means. One time there was a recall of Winn-Dixie bologna because of possible Listeria contamination. I had to take back an unopened one-pound package and the few slices left in another package for a refund. I guess my packages weren't bad. If eating unheated hot dogs out of the package was dangerous, I wouldn't have made it out of elementary school. They were my favorite!

And don't open the microwave door as soon as it turns off. There are still microwaves bouncing around inside, and if they escape through the open door they can sterilize you.

I wanted to mention that we in foodservice can get bulk mayonnaise from Sysco in two packaging formats: sealed 30-pound buckets, or a cardboard box lined with a plastic bag containing the 30# of mayo, and the plastic bag is not sealed. Both are delivered unrefrigerated, and can be stored unrefrigerated. The bucket packaging is preferred, because hey, free buckets, and it's easier to scrape the last of the mayo out of a bucket than to squeeze it out of a big plastic bag.

The "unrefrigerated" part only becomes a hassle when we end up with a substitute driver who delivers it directly to the kitchen, and we're left to pack 150 pounds of mayonnaise back down to the downstairs walk-in cooler that the driver passed on his way to the elevator.

No, it's biting your fingernails and swallowing them that gives you appendicitis.

In fact, when doctors remove an inflamed appendix, they shake it. If it rattles like maracas, then the doctor knows it was fingernails that caused the problem, and not something else.

Glad to clear that up.

Make you a deal: You have some limas from my favorite fish restaurant, and I'll try anything (non-spicy--tummy issues) you love that I hate (think sauerkraut, Brussel sprouts, cauliflower). Or, we can just sit around and disparage beer (not a fan, either).

Another one with a tiny grain of truth, but that got really distorted along the way.

Refeeding Syndrome is a condition that happens when people who have been seriously starved or malnourished start being fed. Apparently it causes metabolic disturbances that can cause fatal cardiac arrythmias.

But it's not "a while"- it's like Bataan Death March or Nazi concentration camp type starvation that causes it.
