Everyone knows that you can't eat the fly agarics and death caps. But, it turns out that even ordinary boletus or mushrooms can be dangerous when consumed incorrectly. The fact that mushrooms tend to accumulate toxic substances. And the older the mushroom, the more of such substances has time to accumulate.

Of course, from one of the mushrooms will be nothing, but if there are enough of them on a regular basis, the risk is very high.

No wonder harmless at first glance, the beans cooked so long. The fact that it contains a large number of phytohemaglutinin. This is a dangerous substance that makes cell membrane vulnerable to other toxins.
To get rid of phytohemaglutinin you can use pre-soak (about 7-9 hours) and long cooking beans. By the way, the water in which you soaked the beans, be sure to drain and cook it in fresh clean water.

In potatoes there is the same dangerous substance that in tomatoes, but in much greater numbers. And stumble upon it is possible even in seemingly ripened potatoes with slightly greenish edges... Remember, if you see potatoes in this color, immediately throw it away. To cook something from it is strictly prohibited!
But dangerous potatoes are not the only reason. It turns out that people can easily get poisoned vapors of carbon dioxide emanating from the deteriorated tubers. This usually occurs when potatoes are stored in large quantities indoors.
