Well, there are kids who use to really study in the dim light but it won't make there vision weaker. According to the Eye Doctors at Harvard University, reading in dim light can make eyes tired and can cause strain which can result a headache.

2. KNUCKLE-CRACKING LEADS TO ARTHRITIS

It's just a MYTH which is in flow, from generations. 
A doctor had done a research on the knuckle cracking for about 50 years. He always use to crack fingers of his left hand twice a day. 
Even, after that much of time he doesn't got arthritis and for this research he won the NOBEL PRIZE in 2009. His name was Dr. Donald L. Ungler.

 There is synovial fluid which keeps our joint bone rubbing together and the crack sound is occurred by the bubbles which occur in the fluid and get pop while cracking.

Well, then ENJOY CRACKING your knuckles.

As a kid, we had played crossed eyes games very often but these crossed eyes don't really get stuck.
There are 6 muscles in our eyes which help them to look in all directions. So, its not possible at all that our eyes will get stuck. 👀


4. SWALLOWING SEEDS WILL LEADS TO GROW A PLANT IN STOMACH

Most of us got panicked as a kid by hearing this and often we use to imagine our self as a human tree, thinking a plant will come out from our mouth someday.
But, now we have known that this was not the truth. Our digestive system is not so friendly with the seeds so that it will help to grow a plant. Our digestive system is too strong that it will make the way out for those seeds through your colon next morning when you will go for toilet.


5. WATCHING TV FROM TOO CLOSE WILL CAUSE EYE VISION DAMAGE

We heard this too often while growing from a kid to an adult.
The truth is that Old Model TVs used to emit harmful radiations which causes strain and headache. But its not long lasting effect. It's out eyes muscle which gets contracted while watching too much TV but once we close our eyes for a while, the eye muscles gets relaxed.


6. WHILE SNEEZING KEEP YOUR EYES OPEN OR THEY WILL FALL OUT

While sneezing the blood pressure behind our eyes increases a little but they will not take out your eyes off. So, you can definitely give a try for this.
