What Plant Can Kill You Instantly
If you’ve ever had a terrible experience with a houseplant and wondered just how dangerous some of them can be, here’s your guide.
Cicuta is a poisonous plant that is common in Europe and North America. It grows in moist soil or water and can be found along roadsides, where it will often grow in clusters. Cicuta is also called water hemlock, poison parsnip, and fool’s parsley.
The Cicuta plant contains several toxins including cicutoxin (which causes seizures) and convallatoxin (which causes paralysis). The toxicity of each part of the plant varies depending on its maturity. Generally speaking, leaves tend to be more toxic than other parts of the plant when consumed raw because they contain higher levels of both cicutoxin and convallatoxin at this stage in their growth cycle. If you’re going to eat this plant for survival purposes or recreation then always cook it first since heat neutralizes these toxic properties making them safe for human consumption
Datura is a flowering plant in the nightshade family. It is native to the Indian subcontinent and tropical Asia, but is naturalized in many parts of North America, Central America, South America and Australia.
