Star Fruits Can Kill
Thank you very much for this important information which is confirmed by

We should all email our friends and loved ones about this seemingly harmless but dangerous fruit which could likely cause the never-ending hiccups I suffered for 2 years since I have kidney stone problems. Thank God this devil fruit is not readily available here and my hiccups have stopped.

Star Fruit Can Kill
This fruit can end your life!
This is not an April Fool Joke. But a stern reminder to all my readers. We were advised to have a few servings of fruits a day in order to rep the benefits of fruits right? But obviously this is one big no-no fruit to be excluded from your fruity feast!
In Shenzen, more than 10 people who consumed the star fruit had died. And now a 66-year-old, Malaysian who has been suffering from kidney ailment fell into coma after eating the star fruits. Yes, all it takes is one fruit or 100ml of its juice and the ordinarily harmless star fruit transforms poison in a matter of hours for kidney patients.
So does this mean, people without kidney problems should be fine with star fruit!
My take: Not at all! Prevention is better right?
Universiti Malaya Medical Centre consultant nephrologist said that star fruits contain a neurotoxin which is not present in other fruits. It affects the brain and nerves. In healthy persons, the kidneys filter it out.
But for those with kidney problems, this potent toxin cannot be removed and will worsen the consumers' conditions.
The symptoms of start fruit poisoning include:
~ Hiccups
~ Numbness and weakness
~ Feeling confused
~ Agitation
~ Epileptic fist
The risk of death is high if you are having kidney ailments! But healthy individuals should beware of this fruit's potential toxin too.
It could also cripple your vitality if you are not lucky. So don't take it for granted. It's better to avoid them.
So be warned. If you have kidney impairment, DO NOT consume Starfruit or Starfruit juice.
