Do you think you eat healthy? Or do you at least try to avoid things that are bad for you? Well, you might be surprised at what foods can kill you! Of course, these foods are most likely perfectly fine if they are eaten normally. It’s just when you start eating the stems and seeds that things can get dangerous. These are 10 Foods That Can Kill You.

10 Hot dogs

Okay, while hot dogs aren’t known for their health benefits, they won’t kill you based on their ingredients. The problem? They are one of the leading causes of choking among young children.

9 Potatoes

In spite of having poisonous stems and leaves, potato poisoning is rare. The majority of potato consumption deaths are the result of eating green potatoes or drinking potato leaf tea.

8 Apple Seeds

While apples are very healthy, their seeds contain amygdalin, a cyanide and sugar compound that degrades into hydrogen cyanide when metabolized. Of course, the body can handle the small amounts of cyanide in these seeds with no issue. Theoretically, however, ingesting a large amount of apple seeds could cause issues.

Note: you would also have to crack every single seed open because the hard coating is too strong to be destroyed by your digestive system.

7 Ackee

It is critical that this pear shaped fruit ripen fully because if you eat it too soon, its toxins could potentially kill you.

Note: it is illegal to sell this fruit raw in the United States. Canned versions, however, can be bought.

6 Mushrooms

While some mushrooms make perfect toppings, others will kill you instantly. So that mushroom you see growing in the wild? Maybe don’t eat it unless you have someone with you that knows what they’re doing.

5 Cinnamon

While the cinnamon challenge was meant to be in good fun, there is a reason that the American Association of Poison Control Centers issued a warning concerning the practice. If it gets in your lungs, cinnamon can cause some serious problems…even death.

4 Nutmeg

Each year there are a few cases of myristicin poisoning due to excessive nutmeg consumption. What is myristicin poisoning, you ask? Think vomiting, hallucinations, collapse, anxiety, and irrational behavior to name a few symptoms. It’s 0kay to enjoy the spice in moderation, but just don’t chug it or anything.

3 Peaches

Similar to apricots, peaches have poisonous pits. Of course, the pits tend to be too large to be edible…fortunately.

2 Uncooked Eggs

Raw meat isn’t the only way you can contract salmonella. Uncooked eggs are just as dangerous.

1 Lima Beans

Similar to cassava root, lima beans contain the toxin linamarin. Uncooked, these beans can be hazardous. To be safe, cook them thoroughly and drain the water!
