12 Common Foods You Didn’t Know Had Weird Side Effects
Mulberries can give you hallucinations
Forest fruits of any kind are delicious and they’re an excellent source of antioxidants which help you improve your immune system.
However, red mulberries can also give you hallucinations if you eat them while they’re unripe.
This study published in the Indian Academy of Sciences revealed that when mulberries are still unripe, their leaves and stems contain a milky substance which stimulates the nervous system. As a result, you may have hallucinations and digestive problems shortly after ingestion.
On the other side, this is the only study that found such results, so researchers are still debating whether unripe mulberries are indeed as dangerous as it’s being said.
Either way, it’s better to be safe than sorry, right?
