So I made a list of the false myths about the human body. It's now time to tell you some of the truthful myths in our world.

The Top Ten

1 Carrots help you see in the dark

Carrots contain Vitamin A and one of the benefits caused by vitamin A is actually being able to see better in dim light. Carrots aren't the best for this though. The best source of vitamin A though is liver. Be careful not to overdose on Vitamin A though! - Cazaam

2 The Atari Landfill

In 1983 Atari found themselves in deep quicksand with over 5 MILLION unsold E.T. cartridges. The game is infamous and often heralded as the worst game ever. There was an urban myth that Atari buried the unsold cartridges in a New Mexico landfill. It turns out to be true. The buried games were discovered on the 28th of April in 2014. After 31 years we have found that this myth is true. - Cazaam
