• A high forehead is a sign of intelligence. Absolutely no evidence for this.

• A receeding chin is a sign of a weak character. No truth in that one either.

• Eating green apples causes stomachache. That isn't strictly true; it isn't the fact that apples are green that causes stomachache, it's possibly because they are so sour to eat they aren't chewed properly and causes the abdominal pains.

• Cobwebs can be used to treat wounds. Probably more likely to cause infection than help, although they might hasten blood clotting. Not to be recommended.

• You can get warts from touching frogs. Unfair on frogs, that one.
The really odd thing is, I suppose, even modem medicine produces its own superstitions.
