Around 70% of all earthly flora are toxic and poisonous and deadly to humans...

Quote: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_poisonous_plants



The side effects of ingesting this posion are, violent convulsions, sever muscle spasms and hyperreflexia, due to its effect on the motor and sensory parts of the spinal cord. It also increases your blood pressure.

These uncontrolled muscle spasms, in overdose, lead to death through exhaustion, or cardiac arrest. The muscle contractions can tear the muscle away from the bone leaving the victims body twisted into normally impossible postions.

Such symptoms may include restlessness, agitation, fear, apprehension, rigidity in the arms and legs, tightness in the jaw, muscle pain and soreness, involuntary and uncontrollable arching of the neck and back, and painful muscle spasms.

The rapid onset of symptoms means if taken, prompt and agressive treatments need to be adminstrasted for any chance of survival as you could be dead within 10/20 minutes.

Most plants and trees have medical properties that can treat various ailments, but too much will kill you. Hell, even water will do that to you.

Fair warning theres way more than a few plants and flowers whos every part from their stems and leaves to their blossoms and fruits that are all highly toxic and just touching some of them will poison you and countless people from all over the world must have found out and still are finding out the hardest way which ones are edible and which ones are deadly but i suppose they usually end up resorting to overtly force feeding and covertly tricking helpless animals and enslaved prisoners into devouring them to find out their benevolent or malevolent reactions to these pretty poisons...
