Hello everyone,

A long time ago, my mother warned me that cooking cabbage for too long can make you sick....even lead to death. She said that once it turns a different color, it turns poisonous to our system. Is this true? I can't seem to find anything about this online. I can't believe that I truly believed this for all of these years. I could have sworn I even saw this on a TV show.

Thank you in adance.

I seriously doubt that overheating or cooking anything could make it poisonous. Burning something might make it a carcinogenic ....

There are a lot of weird Old Wives Tales about.
The other day I was talking to a security guard from Algeria, and he swore that if you go swimming in the sea, an octopus could attach itself to your face and suck all the oxygen out of your lungs. He was quite adamant, and went online to prove it to me.
Needless to say, he found nothing.

Cooking only makes it easier to digest.
The more you cook it, the better it passes!

that is like the story my husbands aunt told me about staying in bed, the 9th day after I had our daughter. She said, on the 9th day all your organs go back into place and if you are standing up, they could fall out. Boy, think of all the wives tails we hears as kids. I guess some of them are still around.
