9 Foods That Will Kill You – Stop Eat Them Now

Raw, red kidney beans contain a toxin called phytohaemagglutinin. This toxin won’t kill you, but it will cause serious vomiting and nausea. To kill the toxin, boil the beans for ten minutes.The cherry itself is safe and delicious, but don’t eat the pits. Cherry seeds are located inside the pit, and the seeds contain enough cyanide to kill a 150-pound personEvery serving of rice (about 1/4 cup) contains a few micrograms of arsenic. Honestly, death by rice is, at best, a theoretical concept, as it would take about 1,800 cups to kill you. You’d probably develop a stomach ache long before you’d get that far.Yucca contains poisonous glycosides, which have been known to kill both the malnourished in developing nations but also otherwise healthy people. If you’re growing yucca in your garden, avoid glycosides poisoning by drying or cooking the yucca soon after it is harvested.Elderberry jam is delicious, but you should never eat the berry raw. Elderberries contain glycosides, which when metabolized, they turn into a form of cyanide. As with bitter almonds, cyanide in elderberries can be neutralized by cooking the berries.Potatoes are generally safe, but make sure they haven’t started to turn green. Unlike with a traffic light, you should stop when you see green potatoes. In addition to being bitter, green potatoes produce the chemical solanine, which can cause vomiting and even cardiac arrest.
