Ive heard that too, but I have this thing about having matches out where my kids can reach them. I had a 7 yr old (plenty old enough to know better) have the neighbor talk her into lighting a match on our back porch. We had put the christmas tree out there so we could take it to the lake for the fish. She lit this dry cmas tree and it went up in flames very quickly. I wanted to hug her and hurt her all at the same time. She knew better but allowed another child to influence her. She could have been seriously hurt so while we DO have matches, I keep them so high, I almost cant reach them...LOL.
