Foods You Should NEVER Eat

  • Published on Dec 30, 2017
  • When you consider how many people choke on food every day, you might begin to think that all foods are incredibly dangerous. However, today’s list reveals the worst of the worst. The foods that you’d have to really trust the chef before you consume them or you’d need to be a risk taker before swallowing.

    12 - This is nuts
    Raw cashews look as innocent as you’d expect from a small nut, but as they say - dynamite comes in small packages. Raw cashews contain urushiol, and in large doses this could be fatal. Even the raw cashews you buy in the store are not 100% raw, but have been steamed to clean them of that risky chemical.

    11 - Healthy Appetite
    Bean sprouts have made their way into our soups, salads, stews and stir fries but did you know they’re a haven for things like E.coli, salmonella and listeria. It’s believed that bean sprouts were responsible for an outbreak of E-Coli in Germany that claimed the lives of 22 people, whilst hundred more were very, very ill.

    10 - Bottom of the food chain
    You’ll be there if you have a bad experience with Echizen Kurage, which is generally eaten in Japan - where else, of course! This delicacy can be eaten either cooked or raw BUT always ensure you eat it in a reputable establishment, because if this jellyfish isn’t cleaned properly, there are toxic parts that can make you exceptionally sick.

    9 - No super food
    Elderberries are considered quite the superfood and are packed with antioxidants, and as wonderful as they genuinely are, they do have a dark side. If you accidentally ingest the leaves, twigs or seeds, you will get severe nausea, headaches and other forms of sickness. Leave the berry picking to the experts.

    8 - Got Milk?
    The milk we drink on a daily basis is all pasteurized, which happens when the milk is heated to a high temperature and then rapidly cooled down. There are people who prefer raw milk and use it to make cheese and of course to drink. This can be very dangerous, as raw milk is a breeding ground for salmonella, E. coli and listeria. Perhaps one of the rare situations where store bought is better than 100% natural?

    7 - Something Fishy
    Over in Egypt, a lot of Fesikh is eaten over the spring festival. It’s fish that is dried in the sun and then fermented in salt for 12-months. Apparently, 4 people fell victim to fesikh poisoning in 2010 and this happens yearly. Health officials have asked citizens to skip this dish, which leads to botulism, where your muscles become paralyzed and chances of recovery are very slim.

    6 - Beware the bagel
    Bagels aren’t dangerous, right? Wrong! Cutting a bagel is considered pretty dangerous, and more people cut themselves whilst attempting to slice a bagel than anything else in the kitchen! In 2011, 2,000 Americans landed up in ER with bagel-related injuries!

    5 - Death by fruit
    You’re aware that the Durian fruit is said to stink like nothing you’ve ever smelt before, however people have also lost their lives to this crazy fruit. A couple who were traveling through Asia compiled a list of people who came to an early demise because of Durian, although some incidents occurred when the fruit fell on their heads, so I don’t think that counts. However, one 60-year old businessman ate too many of them, and he didn’t pull through. He had hypertension, diabetes and suffered from a heart attack.

    4 - Star Struck
    Star Fruit is available worldwide, and although thousands eat this fruit every day - the juice can be very dangerous for anyone struggling with kidney problems. The juice contains neurotoxins which can affect the brain and nerves, and those with unhealthy kidneys are unable to filter out those dangerous neurotoxins.

    3 - Full of beans
    Hopefully they’re cooked though, because red kidney beans - despite not tasting great raw - also contain a toxic agent called phytohaemagglutnin. Just a handful of raw beans could mean vomiting and severe headaches for you. Of course, cook them up and you’ll be able to actually enjoy their wonderful flavor.

    2 - The real Batman
    Bat soup is consumed in many different countries, including Vietnam, Indonesia, Guam and Thailand. This particular bat is definitely not the most attractive one, and might put you off your food…. but I promise there are cuter bats that will make their into your bat soup, making it easier eat. Eating fruit bats has been directly linked to a fatal neurodegenerative disorder. Bats eat huge quantities of cycad seeds which form fatal toxins in the bats skin. So eat with caution!

    1 - Fish Tales
    Here’s another delicacy from the ocean, and heads up, it’s cousin to the very poisonous puffer fish. The skin, liver and reproductive organs of this Blaasop are all fatally poisonous. Chefs have to be ultra-careful when preparing this fish. At least 10 people have succumbed to the fish, and departed shortly after eating their dinner. Best to stick to eating fish fingers!

    Chiterlins are dangerous due to those being pigs intestines which are unehealthy mostly depending on what they ate other than them being the only animal intestines to be consumed. i never ate it because of the awful odor it gives from just being cooked. I have relatives who eats it because it been a food passed down from years since slavery where it orignated.

    I just cooked cassava cake yesterday. I think when it comes to cooking cassava, we have to choose to cook the fresher Ones because the unfresh and not edible( texture are hard and looks like a branch Of the tree) are poisonous.

    I am not familiar with most of the things on this list. I drink cow's milk I eat cherries . I know Shell fish are scavenging the bottom of the rivers and seas they clean up the bottom waste material. Yet some people believe they have good nutrients for human consumption . OK thanks for sharing .

    Dont worry people will will keep eating anything. Have you seen them lately? they are getting fatter and fatter, until most of them cant even walk. Eating is the most favorite pastime. Some countries lack of eating or no food to eat kills their population. Some countries it is the consumption of waayyy tttoooo muucccchhh fooood that kills them. Again look around you. Listen to the late great comedian extraordinaire George Carlin on fat people very true.

    I feel sorry for the bat. Look at the terror on it's face Frozen in time. These people are starving and eat animals and mammals. They need to use birth control instead of having one child after another that they can't afford. Even better start eating their children and kill two birds with one stone. Save the animals and decrease their population.

    It's (TET'ro•DO•TOXin), not what you said - you left out an essential syllable. In science and pharmaceuticals that can be a deadly mistake. Often if you leave out a syllable you are leaving out a component of a thing, meaning that it is probably another thing and not the thing that you were trying to speak of.

    It does not take eleven pounds of rhubarb leaves to give you oxalate acid poison. If you pick the rhubarb with dry dead crumbly leaves on top the acid goes into the stalks. It takes less then one pie. Trust me on this one! Three year recovery and a lot of permanent damages. I survived to tell you, if offered rhubarb pie. Just say no!

    Cherry pits as in all seeds contain hydrogen cyanide (B17) and it is a known CANCER KILLER, by attacking only the cancer cells and never the healthy non damaged cells.
    Consider this, would nature make fruits a lethal food? And no where in the Bible, Old or New, does it say NOT to eat seeds.
    Some call it ignorance but when there's is so much of it, its probably deception and
    its no secret that the globalists want 95% of all humans dead.
    If cherry seeds were lethal, many would already be dead, instead, they are forever

      Frog legs taste just like chicken. They serve it at Chinese buffet restaurants in the United States. They also make your children put on weight if they are finicky eaters. It opens up their appetite. Only the legs!
