The oblong fruits that appear on potatoes during the flowering period are deadly to humans.
Outwardly, they look like small green berries, reminiscent of cherry. And even the accidental use of such a “berry” threatens with severe poisoning, said gastroenterologist Sergey Lopatin.
“In case of poisoning, the digestive system first of all suffers: the child may experience nausea with vomiting, sharp pains in the abdomen. As it spreads in the body, corned beef disrupts the functioning of the heart, kidneys and central nervous system, ”he explained in an interview with “Gazeta.Ru”.
A lethal dose is considered to be approximately 40 milligrams of corned beef. In addition, this substance is found in unripe tomatoes, Lopatin concluded.
Rospotrebnadzor specialists previously gave advice on the choice of ingredients for okroshka. So, potato tubers should not have eyes or green spots.
