Wild Lima bean poisoning

Wild Lima bean poisoning: Introduction

Wild Lima bean poisoning: Wild Lima beans are a legume similar to the common lima beans which are considered safe to eat. The wild lima contains much higher levels of a chemical called cyanogen than the common lima bean. The cyanogen can cause symptoms and if sufficient quantities are eaten, death can result. Some people are so sensitive to cyanogen that eating even the relatively safe common lima bean may result in symptoms though usually they are not severe. Cooking destroys the toxic chemical in lima beans. Raw lima bean sprouts should be avoided. More detailed information about the symptoms, causes, and treatments of Wild Lima bean poisoning is available below.
