1.Cassava
Cassava is something of a staple food in countries including Africa and South America, but it is anything but bland. It is commonly used to make flours and breads, as well as American favourite tapioca pudding. However, if the shrub is prepared incorrectly it is able to produce cyanide - a poison that will harm any human that tries to consume it. This could result in partial paralysis and even death, depending on how much is ingested. In addition to this risk, the plant causes allergic reactions in some people, with experts warning that those with a latex rubber allergy may be more susceptible.


2.Sannakji (wriggling octopus)

Korean delicacy Sannakji is not for the faint hearted, but if you're looking for a meal that will actively attack you as you eat then this is the dish for you. Minimal preparation is required as raw baby octopus is simply dismembered, smothered in sesame oil and served. The problem is that each tentacle of an octopus encompasses its own brain, and these limbs are likely to keep moving around as you swallow. As a result, the cephalopod's suction cups could stick to the cheeks and throat of the diner, making the sannakji less of a meal and more of a choking hazard.

3.Ackee Plant

The beloved Ackee plant is the national fruit of Jamaica, but eating it too ripe or not ripe enough could cause a Jamaican vomiting sickness, seizures, or fatal hypoglycaemia. You can tell if the fruit is ripe because its pods will turn red and it will fall open. If you're chowing down on one of these fruits, remember that only the tasty yellow parts are edible, so stay safe and steer clear of the toxic black seeds and red skin

4.Hot dogs
hot dogs are also a choking hazard to children and should come with a warning label. About 17% of food-related asphyxiations in those younger than 10 are caused by hot dogs, according to a 41-state study cited in the paper. The Academy even recommended that hot dogs be redesigned to make it less likely that they will get lodged in the throats of the young. How do you redesign a hot dog?

Leafy Greens shocked shocked
Leafy greens — including spinach, lettuce, cabbage, arugula and kale — were listed as the riskiest foods of 2009, according to the Center for Science in the Public Interest, which is regulated by the FDA. The group identified 363 separate outbreaks linked to the veggies last year; 240 of those cases were linked to food from restaurants. The majority of contamination were linked to a pathogen called Nirovirus, which is usually spread by the unwashed hands of an ill food handler or consumer. Other contaminants include E. coli and salmonella, both of which can be introduced during the production phase if the greens come into contact with animal manure, contaminated water or wild animals.

Coffee:
Aside from the possibility of increased heart rate, trouble sleeping and discoloration of teeth, there's another a way that a cup of joe can be detrimental to your well being. Call it the burned-crotch effect or the java jump and jive, because when that hot liquid hits your lap, you'll stop at nothing to end the pain.

In 1992, McDonald's had some trouble when 79-year-old grandmother Stella Liebeck of New Mexico sued the fast-food company because a scalding cup of 170° coffee caused third-degree burns over 6% of her body, including her thighs, buttocks and groin. Liebeck was awarded $2.86 million (the amount was later reduced in a settlement). McDonald's later lowered the temperature at which it brews coffee and made warning labels more prominent. Coffee giant Starbucks, however, reportedly brews its coffee at higher levels to this day.

Interesting. Among all of them, I'd say the cassava appears the most poisonous. Cyanide is a very lethal poison.

The analysis is basically false. Every food contains anti-nutrients whch nomatter the detoxification process u employed would never be removed completely.all u need to do as a person is to detoxify the food in question to an extent that it will never have a deleterious effects on the consumers

It hasalways been poisonous. When you read of a family of 5 dying after eating a meal of garri, what do you think? Even in the village, they will tell you that you have to prepare the cassava very well if not it can kill. Yet you will just keep yapping about what you do not know about.

You can also be infected with salmonella from consuming a non-completely cooked meat.

It was just last week I was discussing cassava being poisonous and the person told me the poison is cyanide which is also in ackee.The poisonous cassava is not the one planted and eaten. It is a different kind and is bitter. I know for sure that some of the indigenous Indians of South America use it to make a meat preservative.
Re: Pictures Of The World’s Most Dangerous Foods by Anaskie(m): 1:53pm On Jan 21, 2013
OMG! Cassava is poisonous?? If word of this gets out, it will surely affect the price of garri in the market!
