Kel's Fun Facts: Killer Food

Rabbit: If you eat nothing but rabbit, you will die. Rabbit is full of protein, but not vitamins, so you use more vitamins to digest it than you get from eating it. So on a diet of only rabbit, the more you eat of it, the quicker you die.

Mushrooms: Out of Death Cap, Peppery Milk Cap, Destroying Angel, and Trumpet of Death, the Trumpet of Death is the only one that is not poisonous. Death by mushroom is very uncommon.

Milk and Bread: If you eat nothing but bread and milk, you will dehydrate and eventually die.

Puffer Fish: The puffer fish is the second most poisonous vertebrate in the world. Fugu is the dish made from Puffer Fish and costs approximately $50 for a dish of it. If prepared incorrectly, it will cause numbness, vomiting, dizziness, and possibly muscle paralysis, which can lead to death.

Chocolate: Chocolate can be poisonous in large doses. 22 lbs will kill a human.
