The Top 5 Strangest Poisons That Can Kill You

published on July 17, 2020

Paralyzing skin burning kidney destroying welcome to our list of the world's top five strangest and most deadly poisons first up the Mancha Neal tree this tree is often called poison guava in English an arbol de la muerte tree of death in

Spanish it produces a thick sap that oozes out of its fruit leaves and bark and touching it will leave you with blisters that you'd expect from a severe burn if it's raining do not stand under this tree one of the toxic compounds in

That SAP is water soluble which means it can dissolve in those raindrops and land on you the most toxic compound in the tree for ball interacts with a family of enzymes that modifies proteins and affects what messages are sent

Throughout ourselves for ball binds to these enzymes and causes an irreversible change so they're left on and sending those messages becomes a total mess this can lead to severe inflammation hence the burn exposure to four ball can

Cause some swelling skin and throat burns chest tightness and if you eat it death and there's no doctor approved antidote so steer clear this frog is super cute right wrong well okay yeah fine it's cute but also it'll kill you

It's skin is covered in fluid that contains the Traco toxin but Traco toxin binds to sodium channels on your nerve cells and keeps them from closing permanently this throws off their ability to send chemical signals to your

Heart and central nervous system which will paralyze and maybe even kill you and again there's no antidote Reisen made headlines in the late-1970s murder of a bulgarian journalist an assassin shot a tiny pellet covered in

Ricin out of the tip of an umbrella into his leg ricin is a highly toxic protein found in castor beans you'd only come in contact with it if you chew the bean or breathing castor bean powder both highly unlikely ricin stops ourselves from

Creating new protein by permanently blocking the activity of ribosomes those cellular machines we need to make all the protein in ourselves when a cell stops making protein it'll die if you inhale ricin within a few hours you'll

Have a fever start coughing and your lungs will stop working if you eat it you'll have severe vomiting and diarrhea and your organs will quickly shut down either way without immediately seeking medical attention you won't live long

And sorry no antidote for this one either and then there is gold but not elemental gold gold salts like these gold salts are used to treat rheumatoid arthritis a disease where your immune system attacks itself in flaming your

Joints the gold salts are enough in and sodium ro Thea mal a decrease inflammation by blocking the immune response but you don't want too much gold in your system because it can cause vomiting and diarrhea and mess with your

Kidneys lower amounts over a long time can permanently turn your skin purplish gray and hey guess what there may be an antidote for this one small molecules called ki laters that bind really tightly to metal ions can be used but

They're not always effective and now we've reached the most toxic substance known to humankind the protein botulinum toxin made by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum botulinum toxin causes a disease called botulism canned goods

Contaminated with C botulinum are usually the culprit because the bacteria can grow in places without oxygen your body uses a neurotransmitter called acetylcholine to help nerve cells talk to other cell types like muscle cells

Botulinum toxin blocks acetylcholine which prevents muscle movement and that's dangerous for a lot of reasons you'll see the first symptoms of botulism in someone's face as muscles that control their eyes and mouth begin

To weaken that paralysis will only spread further down their body eventually damaging muscles they need to breathe if you don't get medical attention right away it'll kill you the good news there is an antitoxin the bad

News it won't fix the damage already done to your body all it will do is stop further damage because botulinum toxin keeps muscles from contracting people inject it into their faces to stop wrinkles from forming

It's called Botox and yes it is super super diluted but it's still the most toxic substance on earth it's a crazy world we live in if you suspect that you or someone you're with has been poisoned immediately call the number at the
