10 Foods Banned in the U.S.

  • Fruits seeds (apple, cherry, peach, apricots) have a type of hydrogen CYANIDE called prussic acid.  You'd have to eat a bucket but still... no thanks!

  • Cassava root.  I'm not sure who would have this in their kitchen (not me,) but it's full of CYANIDE. Again, I'll skip.

  • Rhubarb: Ever had a kidney stone. I have... NO GOOD! Rhubarb has an acid in its leaves that cause kidney stones.

  • Cashews found in the store aren't raw. They've already been steamed to remove urushiol. That is also found in poison ivy or posion oak.  If you are highly allergic to these plants you'll probably want to avoid raw cashews too. High levels of Urushiol could be fatal

  • ALMONDS: DO NOT PANIC. This is not your everyday sweet almonds. You have to look out for the BITTER ALMONDS (very rarely sold in USA.) Bitter Almonds contain cyanide. 7-10 can cause serious problems for adult and may kill a child. GOOD GRIEF!

  • TUNA: Hello sushi! And hello mercury. Be careful to not eat too much fish that could be high in mercury. Once mercury is in your body it may travel to your brain...where bad things could happen. Check www.ewg.org for more on which fish to avoid
