14. Reading in Dim Light Will Ruin Your Eyes
Just like eating carrots won’t improve your vision, reading in dim light won’t ruin it. In fact, the only harm reading in a dimly lit environment might cause is a little extra eyestrain, which should go away in a few moments if you simply rest your eyes. Of course, this misconception should have been corrected long ago given the fact that prior to the 1900s people had been reading by dim candlelight for centuries without there being reports of a rapidly deteriorating eyesight epidemic.

13. People With Tourette Syndrome Are Always Shouting Profanity
Despite the common misconception that Tourette syndrome is characterized by sudden uncontrollable bursts of profanity, only 10 percent of Tourette patients actually exhibit that symptom. The vast majority have much milder expressions such as tics, shoulder-shrugging, rapid blinking and compulsive throat-clearing.
There is, however, a very small faction of Tourette patients who have a condition known as Coprolalia. This is an extreme example of a vocal tic marked by the involuntary utterance of obscenities, profanities and derogatory remarks.

12. Eating Carrots Will Improve Your Eyesight
If you were a picky eater as a child you can probably remember your parents telling you that you’ll need to wear glasses if you don’t eat all of your carrots. While it’s true that carrots are a good source of vitamin A, which promotes healthy skin and eyes, eating them won’t give you sharper vision. In truth, the supposed link between carrots and better vision stems more from manufactured propaganda than any actual science. During World War II, Britain’s air ministry put the word out that a vegetable-rich diet helped pilots to better see Nazi bombers in the sky at night. That was a lie fabricated to prevent the Nazi’s from discovering the existence of Interception Radar, which alerted allies of incoming bombers before and was the real reason for the Royal Air Force’s successful defense.
So even though eating carrots won’t give you more acute vision, believing they did might have helped us win World War II.
