7 of The Most Deadly Plants

We have a wide variety of flora and fauna around us. Some are beautiful while some are absolutely deadly and dangerous that you can’t even imagine and many of us even didn’t know about that. You might not be aware of some of the plants which are extremely dangerous and could cause even death due to the poison and the toxins they contain. There are some of the famous plants that are popular for taking the life of humans such as President Abraham Lincoln’s mother, Nancy Hanks due to milk poisoning.

Innocent children’s and animals are the main victims who are not aware of the toxicity they contain. Since inception, poisonous plants are responsible for causing the human deaths due to the ignorance and little knowledge. Here we have mentioned 7 of the fatal plants which are extremely dangerous and could prove fatal to your life if consumed by mistake.

Scroll down to know more about these poisonous plants and their toxins.

1. Oleander

Oleander

If you will look at this plant you will not believe that such a beautiful plant can be dangerous for you. This plant is popularly known for its beautiful flowers. All the parts of the plant are very deadly and fatal. If eaten by mistake it can cause vomiting, drowsiness, slowed heart rate, shaking and even death. If you get into contact with the leaves of the plant it can cause skin irritant.

The rosary pea is also known as jequirity beans whose tiny seeds are extremely dreadful which can cause death within 36 hours because of the toxic protein that it contains known as abrin. They are found in tropic areas and are often used to make jewellery. The toxic chemical found in this plant prevents protein synthesis within cells and can cause organ failure within 4 days.

3. White Snakeroot

White Snakeroot Plant

Do you know this innocuous plant is responsible for the death of Abraham Lincoln’s mother, Nancy Hanks? This is a North American herb which contains toxin alcohol known as tramadol. President’s mother died because of consuming the milk of a cow who grazed on this deadly plant or you can say due to milk poisoning. The common symptoms of milk poisoning include weakness, nausea, loss of appetite, reddened tongue and even death.

4. Water Hemlock

Water Hemlock Plant

This plant is deemed to be the most violently toxic plant that belongs to North America. It resembles Queen Anne’s lace and is even sometimes confused with celery. If mistakenly consumed it can cause symptoms like nausea, abdominal cramps, painful convulsions and death.

5. Castor Oil Plant

Castor Oil Plant

Most of us might be using the castor oil for preparing home remedies but do you know how dangerous this plant is which can even kill you rather than curing you. Its seeds are quite poisonous according to the study done by Cornell University College of Agriculture and Life Sciences.

Only one seed is enough to kill a child as it contains the toxin named as ricin which is responsible for causing the severe problems in the human body such as dehydration from frequent vomiting and diarrhoea.

6. Foxglove

Foxglove Plant

The plant really has beautiful flowers which can fool anyone easily. It has bell-shaped flowers and beautiful and coloured berries which can easily entice kids. It grows in the wild forest and even grown in private gardens. All the parts of the plant are extremely poisonous which can cause death if swallowed.

7. Rhododendron and Azalea

Rhododendron and Azalea

Its beautiful blooms are pretty enough to make you fall in love with them, but the truth is that the entire plant is highly deadly and toxic. Consuming a flower, stem or leaf could lead to coma, paralysis, difficulty in breathing, abdominal pain and even death.

Well, these were some of the toxic plants which one should know about so that if you ever come across these you would be careful and cautious.

After completing my studies and getting a decent job I wanted to do something creative. I firmly believed that there should be a hobby that helps you to earn. Thus I made my hobby of writing into my part-time profession and started to write from the last two years. My journey as a writer has enriched me.

Mother Suffering from Hyper Lactation Donates Her Milk

A mother from California named Tabitha Frost is doing a great job. She is suffering from hyper lactation which means she can produce three times more milk than the average mother could. What’s more wonderful is that she is helping other mothers who can’t produce this much milk to feed their babies. Until now, she has donated approximately 15,000 ounces i.e. more than 117 gallons of milk and she has donated all of it.

She loves serving other mothers this way

She loved her idea of donating her overproduced milk to other moms who can’t feed their child properly due to one or other reason. She says, “I’m happy to help,” Frost, a blogger from Carlsbad, California, told “Good Morning America.” “I do know of certain people who have had their babies prematurely and their milk hasn’t come in yet. I see this as my way of being able to serve my community.”

Frost is the mother of three children. She recalled that when her second child was born in 2016, a nurse at the hospital has commented on her higher milk production level.

She is suffering from hyper lactation syndrome

Frost used to be a nanny as well as a preschool teacher. She started to search where she could donate the excess milk that she produces. Se pumps every three hours and it has become a full-time job for her as when she doesn’t do this she gets a clogged duct or mastitis.

She says, “My routine doesn’t stop whether I’m on vacation, I’m not feeling well, or if I’m lacking in sleep. I’m always doing it.”

She pumps wherever she requires… Even at the restaurant

The zeal to help other moms those who are in need makes Frost goes on and on and that’s why she doesn’t stop or take a break from this duty. She has pumped even in restaurants, on vacation, on airplanes and even at a concert during a date night with her husband, Nick, 35. The funniest among the rest is the museum. She told. Even her husband supports her in doing this thing and he is fine if she does this at public places.
