We generally talk to them about the positive aspects of plants, the healing effects and the advantages they have, we also talk about how to care for them and water them, but we rarely explain the consequences that some can have with us human beings. It is for this reason, that today, we bring you 5 of the most poisonous plants in the world, so that you start to know them, and be very careful if you come across any of them.

First we have to the Ricinium, also known by its scientific name of Ricinus Communis. This plant is a bush with a very thick and woody stem, which is hollow inside. It has a globular fruit, triboculated and covered, almost always by many thorns and quills. It is important that you be very careful with the seeds of its fruit as they are very toxic and ingestion could end up causing death.

Another of the most poisonous plants in the world is Belladonna, or Atropa Belladonna, a hardy and perennial shrub, native to the European continent, North Africa and western Asia. In ancient times the Egyptians used it as a kind of narcotic, while the Syrians used it to ward off sad and depressing thoughts. Similarly, during the Middle Ages, it was used by the "witches" to make mixtures. This plant is very poisonous due to its alkaloids, which are capable of causing death or coma.
