Top 10 Foods That Can Kill You:

10. Elderberry
Elderberries that aren't ripe or cooked properly can trigger diarrhea, because uncooked or unripe elderberries produce cyanide and can poisonous to humans.

9. Apples
Apple seeds can indeed be poisonous, but it takes quite a few of them to kill you and only if they have been crushed. Apple seeds contain amygdalin, a cyanogenic glycoside composed of cyanide.

8. Kidney Beans
Kidney beans are particularly dangerous, not only because they are one of the most consumed beans around, but they also have the highest concentration of lectins. That means you shouldn't chuck them in the slow cooker.

7. Tomatoes
The green, unripe fruit of tomatoes, as well as the leaves, and stems, contain small amounts of the poison alkaloid tomatine, and solanine, the same toxin found in potato leaves.

6. Peanuts
An allergy to peanuts is the most common food allergy in adults and child. It is dangerous enough to cause death if left untreated, so know your allergies before stepping anywhere near these babies or their addictive friend.

5. Cherries
The main danger of cherries is that their pits, stems, and leaves contain cyanide, per kilogram Cherries found 1.52 milligrams hydrogen cyanide, which is poisonous and potentially lethal if consumed in high enough quantities.

4. Bitter Almonds
Bitter almonds may yield from 4–9 mg of hydrogen cyanide per almond and contain 42 times higher amounts of cyanide than the trace levels found in sweet almonds.

3. Rhubarb Leaves
Rhubarb leaves contain poisonous substances, including oxalic acid, which is a nephrotoxic and corrosive acid that is present in many plants. Humans have been poisoned after ingesting the leaves.

2. Mushrooms
Mushroom poisoning is usually the result of ingestion of wild mushrooms after misidentification of a toxic mushroom as an edible species.

1. Potatoes
The poisonous alkaloid is found in the green parts of potatoes, including new sprouts, stems, leaves. Never eat potatoes that are spoiled or green below the skin. Always throw away the sprouts. Potatoes that are not green and have had any sprouts removed are safe to eat.
