These 16 Common And Trendy Foods Taste Great…And They Could Kill You

While these foods may pass the test to make their way to supermarket shelves, they could be secretly waiting to kill you.

If you’re a fan of B-Movies, you’ve probably seen or at least heard of the 1978 horror-comedy film “Attack of the Killer Tomatoes.”

In the film, killer tomatoes wreak havoc on the nation, killing innocent people with their deceitful deliciousness. While death by killer tomato may be nothing more than a fictitious plot used to fill theater seats, there may actually be some truth to the story.

Sometimes no matter how delicious they are, some of the foods we eat could be trying to kill us. Okay, they wouldn’t kill you instantly, but their nutritional makeup can include a variety of saturated fats, refined sugars, and even a few toxins that don’t exactly bode well for the bod. While some of the foods on this list are considered unique and trendy, there are plenty more common foods you eat all the time that aren’t exactly looking out for your well-being.

To keep you in the know, here are 16 foods that taste great but really don’t give a damn about your health.

1. Cassava

Cassava, also known as yucca, can be poisonous if not processed properly. This root fruit is known to naturally contain cyanide.

2. Potatoes

Potatoes are usually our go-to carb, but if they’re sprouting or are green in color, they may be poisonous.

3. Cherries

If you swallow a cherry seed, you’re not going to grow a cherry tree in your belly, but you could be subjecting yourself to a dose of cyanide.
