Toxic Food: Everyday Produce That Can Be Poisonous
share this story
Ever since we were little kids, our parents have been drilling it into our heads: "Eat your fruits and veggies, they're good for you." We can't even count how many times we've heard the saying "an apple a day keeps the doctor away."
But what if we told you that some of these produce items might be dangerous? While eating an apple may give you much needed vitamins, the seeds could actually make you feel sick.
We're not telling you to stay away from the very nutritious fruits and vegetables. And we're not trying to fill you with fear or make you wonder if every meal that's on your plate is safe to eat. But we do want to better inform you on which foods you should be cautious of when preparing, and which ones have leaves or seeds you need to steer clear of.
