The deadliest plant in the world is the castor bean plant. It is estimated that the protein, ricin, found in the castor bean plant is as much as 6,000 times more poisonous than cyanide. BE CAREFUL handling this plant.

I don't know about skunk cabbage, but the castor plant is DEADLY poison. Many people plant it as a good boarder, but the castor bean will kill you if ingested and if it doesn't right away, will shut your kidneys down.


This was the virtually undetectible poison in Ann Rule's true story, "Bitter Harvest"
