Doctor Ivanov told Russians about village flowers that should not be touched or smelled: ash, buttercup, aconite and chalk mussel are life-threatening flowers 06/15/2024, 23:51

Some garden plants can be dangerous to smell or touch. In this respect “Izvestia” said doctor Roman Ivanov.

Ash (wild star anise) can cause burns to the skin. It grows mainly in the European part of Russia. Because of the beauty of the flowers, people often collect them or try to smell them. The resulting serious burns are accompanied by fever and headaches.

Ranunculus is a small yellow flower that grows near water bodies. All parts contain hazardous materials that can cause burns. They can cause temporary blindness if they come into contact with the eyes.

Purple-flowered aconite, which grows in European Russia and Southern Siberia, is so poisonous that even inhalation can cause respiratory paralysis and cardiac arrest.

Cretaceous mussel (grows in the south, especially in the Orenburg region) contains a strong poison – the alkaloid anabasine, which can penetrate the skin. Touching it is life-threatening.

The doctor also reminded about the danger of lily of the valley: all its parts are poisonous, touching the flower can cause allergic reactions.
