Live octopus tentacles, scorpion lollipops and explosive chewing gum. These are some mega deadly foods from around the world that could kill you in a matter of seconds. Some of them eat every day. In this post, we’re going to take a look at 5015 banned foods that can kill. Number 15 killer Root Beer.
This drink is loved by everyone around the world. Millions of cans are consumed every day in the United States alone. But this delicious soda has a very deadly background. Scientists discovered that the main ingredient in root beer, sassafrass oil, has a load of nasty side effects. Apparently could cause over ten different cancers.
No way. It was also found to contain traces of the illegal drug Ecstasy in it. Everyone who drank it could have become high and started to hallucinate. Luckily, they have removed this toxic chemical from the soda. Can you believe we’re still talking about root beer?
Yeah, me neither. Number 14 fu goo. This fish could literally kill a man after only one bite. Isn’t that terrifying? This deadly Japanese sea creature is super popular all around the world.
I guess people must really have a death wish. Why? If it’s not prepared correctly, just one pinsized amount of it is enough to kill a human man in seconds. They will go into immediate kidney and liver failure, and no medicine can stop it. Doctors also say it can be a pretty painful death.
Now it’s pretty dangerous dinner if you ask me. I think I’ll just stick to burgers from now on. Number 13 destroying angels. These are the most deadly organisms on earth. Isn’t that insane?
Who thought it was a good idea to eat these? The names should tell you everything you need to know. These mushrooms are pure, white, and look pretty harmless. They can be found in most forests around the world. But just one peasized amount in a soup can kill up to ten adults.
It causes a pretty nasty death, too. Victims start to vomit and suffer severe stomach pains. The worst part is they’ll start to feel better before they suddenly die of organ failure. That’s pretty grim. Number Twelve kinder Egg Surprises.
Wait a minute. These are my favorite candies. You wouldn’t think these delicious chocolate eggs were deathly killing machines, would you? I mean, what could go wrong? Well, it turns out quite a lot.
The US. Government was forced to ban these yummy candies after hundreds of children nearly choked to death. Isn’t that insane? Inside the eggs were little plastic toys which young children also tried to eat. Of course, plastic isn’t meant to be swallowed, and so lots of little kids ended up choking on them.
Turns out the Kinder Egg Surprises contained more of a nasty surprise than a good one. Number Eleven killer Hot Dogs. This list is really taking off. I can’t believe hot dogs are so dangerous. I love them.
These delicious sausage and bread combinations are an American classic. People love them at barbecues, birthday parties, and fast food joints all around the world. But it turns out they’re actually lethal killing machines. No joke. Can you believe they are one of the biggest killers of children under three?
Isn’t that insane? Because of their size, they are a huge choking hazard to young kids. When eaten whole, they can get lodged in black kids air rays, meaning they can suffocate with children. Hot dogs must be cut up into small sections. Who knew?
They brought us close to death with every bite. If you think these were dangerous foods, just wait until we get to the very deadly wriggly critter at number one. Number ten cherry stones. This list is getting absolutely insane. I had no idea if some of my favorite fruits could kill me.
Nothing safe. Everyone loves cherries, right? I mean, cherry flavored soda is the best, but you better avoid the stones inside the cherry next time. That is, if you want to stay alive. They contain the super deadly chemical called cyanide.
That’s a poison used by the most evil villains and assassins all around the world. These cherry stones actually contain quite a lot of it. Accidentally eating 1 st might be fine, but I definitely don’t want to take the risk, do you? Number nine castor oil. This deadly ingredient is literally in all of your favorite candies, peanut butter, and even pizza.
I think I’m going to cry. I love all those foods. This dangerous oil has been hiding right under our noses. Castor oil comes from a plant that can be used as a biological weapon. The castor bean plant is loaded with the poison ricin.
This is what some of the world’s most famous assassins have used to kill people. Yeah, it’s no laughing matter. This plant is banned around the world, and castor oil producers have to be really careful. No beans end up in their product. Number eight microwave popcorn.
This has completely changed how I view my favorite movie snack. Popcorn is the best. Please don’t tell me it’s been banned. Thankfully, for all us popcorn lovers out there, the food itself is super safe to eat. It was the microwavable bag it came in which started making it deadly dangerous to those who ate it.
The bag used to be covered in a highly toxic acid, which caused several types of cancer. So without realizing, people got a nice sight of serious illness along with their microwaveable popcorn. Yikes. Thankfully, the bag was redesigned. I think I’ll stick to the caramel flavor next time and leave the cancer causing flavorings out.
Seven poisonous potatoes. This one’s got to be a joke. I will not give up on fries. It turns out that, sadly, our favorite vegetable might kill us. Potato leaves and flowers can contain a deadly poison called solanine.
Even small amounts of it can cause a grown man to collapse and die within minutes. Any potato that looks slightly green may have this chemical and could be a killing machine. So avoid it. Maybe think about this next time you’re chowing down on fries in your favorite fast food restaurant. Six rhubarb.
This delicious fruit is a favorite in pies, cobblers, and candies, but it can also burn your tongue and throat off, meaning you need to be hospitalized. That sounds like a pretty dangerous fruit to me. The leaves actually contain a deadly chemical called oxalic acid. This can literally burn through human skin in a matter of minutes and make people’s flesh start to dissolve. Isn’t that insane?
The good news for this one is you’d have to eat about 5 leaves before your flesh would disappear right before your eyes. I’d like to keep my flesh, so I think I’ll give that one a miss. Five raw milk. This list is actually starting to really scare me. Turns out everyone’s favorite dairy product could be full of flesheating parasites.
These wriggly monsters can literally start eating your brain from the inside out. Fresh milk was banned in the US. After it was found to contain some parasites that can live inside humans. They can grow up to several feet long. They mainly affect the skin, so definitely get checked out if you have a new rash.
Some of these parasites can even live inside human brains and can cause people to be completely insane. I think I’ll just stick to water. Number four spicy chili peppers. I did not expect to see these guys on this list. I love chili peppers and everything spicy.
Well, not anymore, I guess. I’m definitely going to avoid them like the plague from now on. These peppers are fine to eat in small amounts, but they turn super deadly when people eat too many of them. Several chili pepper eating contests have been banned in the US. Because of some seriously gruesome deaths.
The spice can make your lungs shrink to the size of your fist. This means almost no oxygen can get in. You can suffocate and die. Crazy starting out, things get serious. It’s time to look at a candy that can literally blow your face off.
A gruesome lollipop filled with poisonous critters, and a sea creature you eat while it’s still wriggling on your tongue. Three exploding chewing gum. This food caused one of the world’s most gruesome deaths. A chemistry student in Ukraine was studying science in his room and decided to have a small snack. Sounds pretty safe, right?
Well, it wasn’t. Neighbors reported hearing a huge bang following. The walls started to shake. When the ambulance got to Vladimir’s room, they found a deadly sight. Vladimir’s gum had been laced with explosives.
When he chewed on it, the gum blew up inside his mouth. Reports say part of his face were all over the room. Countries then banned gum over safety fears. It turned out that Vladimir had accidentally coded his gum and explosives he had in his room for science class. That was a pretty fatal mistake.
To ask me. Number two scorpion lollipops. This one seems like a total no brainer. Who thought you could safely put the world’s deadliest animal in a lollipop and eat it? Excuse me one moment while I go vomit.
You’d have to be crazy to eat this. This lollipop has an absolutely deadly twist. There’s a scorpion in it. It was dangerous not only for the lollipop eater, but also the lollipop maker. Several people died trying to catch these critters for the candy.
Because scorpions were put in a lollipop mixture while still alive, their deadly venom could be released into the lollipop, killing the person eating it. Scorpion flavored lollipop, anyone? Now we move on to the moment you’ve all been waiting for. One live octopus. This has to be the craziest snack I have ever heard of.
Who looks at a wriggly, wet live octopus and decides they want to eat it? Are these guys insane? This sea critter is a delicacy in Korea known as Sinanci. It looks like a nightmare to me. The chef chops it up while it’s still alive and serves it with sesame seeds and soy sauce.
The problem is, these little critters are still wriggling and can attach to your tongue and throat in large numbers. Hundreds of people all around the world world have died through choking because their tentacles block their airways.
