1. Birthmarks Aren't from Accidents

Among the large number of wives tales proven false resides the one stating that birthmarks are caused by accidents happening during pregnancy. Birthmarks are, in fact, not very picky about who they're born with. Some birthmarks are a patch of skin with extra pigment while others are a bunch of blood vessels that didn't form correctly. In most cases, children outgrow them, although there have been instances where they have stayed the same throughout adulthood, and a few rare cases where they've gotten bigger.
