Hey Geeks, it’s Andrea. Eating food can be one of the world’s greatest pleasures, but there are some seemingly innocent foods out there that can lead to sickness and even death. Here are a few things you may have eaten that can be incredibly dangerous. Alright Geeks, let’s go.
Fugu, or blowfish, is notorious as one of the most dangerous foods you can eat. Blowfish have a poison called tetrodotoxin in their liver, intestines, and ovaries. Tetrodotoxin is over a thousand times more deadly than cyanide. It doesn’t even take a drop to kill a person. You aren’t going to find fugu just anywhere. Because of the danger, a chef has to go through several years of training before they can get a license. So if you want to try it, it is going to cost a pretty penny.
You may love a good rhubarb pie, but the leaves are full of dangerous levels of oxalic acid. Oxalic acid poisoning can cause kidney damage. That being said, although it doesn’t take much to make you sick, it would take a large amount of rhubarb to kill an average-sized adult.
3. Live Octopus
You can’t get live octopus everywhere, but if you are brave enough to eat it make sure you chew it properly. If you don’t, the suction cups can stick to your throat. We can all see where this is going. You can get fresh octopus that is sliced just before you eat it, but even then you need to be very careful. The suction cups are still working and tentacles are still wriggling. I reiterate, be sure to chew thoroughly.
If you are about to make a cherry milkshake, be sure to remove the pits before turning your blender on. Obviously it would taste horrible, but beyond that, the pit contains cyanogenic compounds. Only a couple ground cherry pits can contain enough cyanide to kill an average-sized adult.
1. Hot Dogs
You may think a hot dog is pretty innocent, but it is the leading cause of choking fatalities in children. If you are feeding a child in your care, be sure to watch them very closely. Preferably cut them up before giving them to them to lower the risk.
