Plant Toxins

Health Dangers of a Plant-Based Diet

Can a Plant-Based Diet be Toxic?

Moving to a plant-based diet is what we should all be doing, as plants are good for us, and animal-based foods are bad. But is it that simple? And if eating a plant-based diet is good for us, is eating more plants even better?


In this paper, we will look at various parts of plants that humans eat – everything from their seeds to roots to stems to leaves to their fruits.

And with each “Plant Part” we will highlight a particular “Plant Poison” or ‘Plant Toxin’ that the plant uses to deter predators.

Below the paper, you will find a collection of helpful plant-based infographics.
