7 Foods You Consume Without Knowing How Poisonous They Are

#1 Lima Beans

 Lima Beans

We get used to some certain foods and keep eating them for months and even years. Some foods you might have in your fridge and pantry may be too poisonous.

We’ve decided to make a list of eight poisonous foods we all commonly eat. As the saying goes, “Forewarned is forearmed”. 

Not all legumes are equally healthy for people. One of the most commonly used legumes is the lima bean. They are usually served in mixed vegetables, soups and pastas. These pale green beans are safe enough, but only if you know how to cook them. Do not eat this legume raw. This type of food contains a lot of cyanide. The plan produces this substance to protect itself. Unfortunately, it is a poisonous chemical. The food industry regulates commercially grown beans. They monitor cyanide levels and sell lima beans that are safe to eat.
