I found this on Wikipedia Raw Food, its about poisoning from certain Raw Foods, can anyone confirm or (accuratly) deny them?
As the consumption of raw foods gains popularity, some potentially unsafe foods have re-entered the diets of humans. However, the following list includes many foods which are rarely promoted by the educated proponents of Raw Foodism, especially beans or legumes.
Buckwheat greens are toxic when raw, particularly if juiced or eaten in large quantities by fair skinned individuals. The chemical component fagopyrin is known to cause severe photosensitivity and other dermatological complaints.
Kidney beans, including sprouts, are toxic when raw, due to the chemical phytohaemagglutinin.
Alfalfa sprouts contain the toxin canavanine.
Some types of raw cassava or cassava flour can be toxic.
Raw eggs contain avidin, a vitamin B7 or biotin inhibitor, which can cause â€œegg white injuryâ€. As many as 24 egg whites would have to be eaten to inactivate biotin. Avidin is denatured by heat.
Raw seeds of the genus lathyrus (peas), can cause lathyrism.
Raw brassica species can contain glucosinolate.
Several seeds contain poison, such as Apricot kernels, which contain the toxin cyanide. See Seed#Poison_and_food_safety
Raw parsnips contain furanocoumarin.
Raw foods, particularly raw meat, may contain harmful bacteria and their associated bacterial toxins. Other parasites and viruses may also be present, such as toxoplasma, trichinella, or rotavirus, which may cause serious foodborne illnesses.
Raw milk may contain Mycobacteria bovis (which can cause non-pulmonary tuberculosis).
Raw sweet potato, cabbage, cauliflower, turnips, rutabaga, canola oil, cassava, pinenuts, mustard, millet, soybeans and peanuts contain small amounts of Goitrogens which can interfere with iodine utilization and cause Hypothyroidism.
