Nigeria should therefore begin to import foods recommended by these brilliant SCIENTISTS. Four thousand years of history could not be wiped away so easily.

[color=#006600]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.

Finally, a thread that will most definitely affect the price of garri

Not all varieties of cassava are dangerous when boiled and eaten like yam.
The dangerous variety has green colored leaf stem.

Thank you!... hope people get off the panic button. .... and I learned that cassava has something in it that prevents the development of sickle cell. I want to believe that is true because since sickle cell affects Blacks it should be most prevalent in Africa and Brazil and not the US.So I'm reasoning that Blacks in the US are not cassava eaters so the reason for so many sickle cell people.Long live cassava...long live garri!

Pls properly processed cassava (tapioca, akpu, garri, abacha, woteva) is not harmful. Dat is why the cassava has to undergo proper fermentation to be edible. Nobody in his correct senses wud eat cassava tubers in their unprocessed state. Unless u wan mk cyanide finish u

Re: Pictures Of The World’s Most Dangerous Foods by UyiIredia(m): 6:10pm On Jan 21, 2013
I agree with the list except for hotdog. It's apparently a danger to children only but what's in consideration are foods that endanger all age groups.

OP: forgot to include the most deadliest of them all, FUGU, Japanese sushi (raw fish dish) made from the fuffer or globe fish. The eggs, skin & liver contain a deadly poison, tetrodotoxin, which cannot be destroyed by cooking or freezing and has no antidote.
It is so dangerous (attacking the central nervus system) that only licensed chefs in Japan are allowed to prepare it.
