Kidney Beans is a lethal toxin!

You may not believe it, but that kidney beans that you see Hausa men selling on the streets can be dangerous to your health. You may ask HOW?

It contains a potentially lethal toxin that has a very ugly name: phytohaemagglutinin (I would have done copy and paste for the name but now, I guard against plagiarism).

Kidney Beans Toxic
It is reported that eating just a few of it uncooked will send a person to the grave. But why do these Hausa men still sell it and why do people still buy it?

Because when you cook it, the toxin is greatly neutralized. Just boiling it for 10 minutes can do the magic. So if you cook and eat these kidney beans, make sure you don’t eat too much of it; even if you spent two days cooking it!
