Food is brings people joy. You can bond over food, socialize over food, and survive off of food. Well, not all of it. There are foods in the world that have major consequences to your body.
Today’s infographic is a list of the world’s most dangerous foods. These foods have caused organ failure, poisoning, and even death.
One of the most dangerous foods on this list comes from China, and is called the Blood Clam. Blood Clams are so dangerous that they cause viruses such as hepatitis A and dysentery. In 1988, 31 people died from eating these clams. 15% of people who consume blood clams gain some sort of infection.
Elderberries are a food that you must be extremely cautious with when preparing. You can eat these, but you must take a series of steps to eat them. You cannot eat these berries with the leaves, twigs, or seeds. These all contain cyanide which is an extremely dangerous chemical. People who have consumed elderberries have suffered from seizures which is never a good thing.
I highly recommend that if you ever come across these foods, avoid them at all costs. I don’t want anyone to get sick or injured if they consume these foods. Hopefully, if you see these foods anywhere, you will keep this infographic in mind. Eat well, eat smart, and eat healthy!16.3k
