Common Delicious Foods That Can Be Very Toxic To Your Body

Healthline reports that.. We need the energy and nutrients that foods supply, but we also need to be careful about what we eat. Cooking enhances the flavor of some foods that, if eaten raw, could be very toxic to your body. Here are the common delicious foods that can be very toxic to your body.

The Apple Seed: Bolts and Nuts

Begin with some delicious apples, of course. Apples are perfectly safe to eat, but you should avoid eating the seeds. Apple seeds contain a small but lethal quantity of cyanide, which can cause fast breathing, convulsions, and even death in large enough doses.

2.Scented Cherry Stones

The cherry pit, commonly known as the "hard stone" in the centre of the fruit, contains the toxic Nitric acid, also known as cyanide. If you swallow the stone without chewing it, it will pass through your system without causing any harm.

3. Elderberries

The anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-inflammatory properties of elderberries make them a popular natural remedy for a wide range of health issues. Elderberries are a healthy fruit when fully ripe, but the lectin and cyanide they contain make their unripe berries, bark, and leaves poisonous.

These two chemicals may cause some people to feel nauseous, throw up, or have diarrhea.

4) Nutmeg

In small amounts, nutmegs are an excellent spice that brings out a pleasant nutty flavor. Yet, ingesting as little as two teaspoons of the poisonous oil can lead to hallucinations, lethargy, dizziness, confusion, and even convulsions. myristicin

5 . All-Natural Cashews

It is recommended that raw cashew seeds be boiled completely before consumption since they contain urushiol, a toxic chemical also found in poison.

6 . Mangoes.

Mango skin, bark, and leaves contain urushiol, the toxin responsible for the unpleasant effects of contact with poison ivy, just like raw cashews. Mangoes should be avoided by people who have a poison ivy allergy, especially if their sensitivity is strong, because eating one might trigger itching, rashes, and even breathing problems.

7. Raw Kidneys.

The lectin content of raw red kidney beans is the highest of any bean type. Lectins have been linked to a variety of adverse effects, including stomach pain, queasy feelings, and even throwing up.

8.Famous Fruit.

Those who already have kidney problems should avoid eating star fruits. The neurotoxins found in star fruits are normally eliminated by the kidneys within a day, but if the kidneys are unable to do so, the poisons will stay in the body for another day, causing delirium, convulsions, and eventually death.

9. Nuts and berries

Mushrooms are a popular food choice since they are both nutritious and delicious. Contrarily, there are lethal mushrooms like the death cap (Amanita phalloides) and the destroying angel (Amanita virosa).

Ingestion of these mushrooms is associated with severe abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, dehydration, extreme thirst, liver failure, coma, and even death.
