Although, it could be a huge number of them to be utilized in order to create real destruction. It is much better to avoid these plants before it will cause any problems.

Maybe your not well informed concerning this matter, so in this article we provide you list of plants that you need to avoid and remove from your home specifically if you have babies and pets.

1. Abrus Precatorius (Jequiity)


The main toxin is abrin, which is concentrated in the seeds. The most poisonous parts of the plant involved in poisoning are the small, scarlet seeds, that have a black eye at the hilum.

Children are attracted to the brightly-coloured seeds and may chew, suck, or swallow them. Because of the hard and relatively impermeable coat of the mature seeds, they are considerably less toxic if swallowed whole.

They are more dangerous when the seeds are chewed or sucked because the toxic elements in the seeds are extracted and mixed with enzymes. Immature seeds are also poisonous if ingested because of their soft and easily broken coat. When the seeds are used as ornaments, such as necklaces, holes are drilled in the seeds, which allow contact between the intestinal secretions and the core of the seed resulting in absorption of the toxic ingredients.

2. Ricinus Communis


The seeds from the castor bean plant, Ricinus communis, are poisonous to people, animals and insects. One of the main toxic proteins is "ricin", named by Stillmark in 1888 when he tested the beans' extract on red blood cells and saw them agglutinate. Now we know that the agglutination was due to another toxin that was also present, called RCA (Ricinus communis agglutinin). Ricin is a potent cytotoxin but a weak hemagglutinin, whereas RCA is a weak cytotoxin and a powerful hemagglutinin. It is advisable to keep children away from the castor bean plant or necklaces made with its seeds. In fact donĂ­t even have them in or around a house with small children. If they ingest the leaves or swallow the seeds, they may get poisoned. The highly toxic seeds beaded into necklaces, cause skin irritation at the contact point.

3. White Snakeroot (Ageratina Altissima)


Homestead dairy herds can encounter a wide variety of poisonous plants, but few have the potential to be as troublesome or frightening as white snakeroot (Ageratina altissima, formerly Eupatorium rugosum). This medium-sized perennial herb, which we first learned about in 2008, can be toxic not only to the livestock consuming it, but to humans consuming dairy products and meat from those livestock. It contains toxic alcohol that is known as trematol. If swallowed, the symptoms include loss of appetite, nausea, weakness, stomach pain, red tongue, abnormal blood acidity and worse is death.

4. Deadly Nightshade (Atropa Belladonna)


Deadly nightshade is one of the most toxic plants in the Eastern Hemisphere. While the roots are the most deadly part, the poisonous alkaloids run through the entirety of the plant. Scopolamine and hyoscyamine are among these toxins, both of which cause delirium and hallucinations. Deadly nightshade berries pose the greatest danger to children, as they are attractive and are deceptively sweet at first bite. Yet just two berries can kill a child who eats them, and it takes only 10 or 20 to kill an adult. Likewise, consuming even a single leaf can prove fatal to humans. Cattle, horses, rabbits, goats, and sheep can eat deadly nightshade without ill effect, though many pets are vulnerable to its lethal effects. Symptoms of deadly nightshade poisoning present quickly, so if medical aid is far off, drink a large glass of warm vinegar or a mixture of mustard and water, which may dilute and neutralize its toxicity.

5. Poison Hemlock


Poison hemlock, (Conium maculatum), poisonous herbaceous plant of the parsley family (Apiaceae). Poison hemlock is native to Europe and North Africa and has been introduced to Asia, North America, and Australia. All parts of the plant contain the poisonous alkaloid coniine and are toxic to livestock and humans; ingestion of even small amounts can cause respiratory collapse and death.
