10 OF THE WORLD’S DEADLIEST PLANTS

Throughout the world, there exists a number of plants capable of inflicting serious harm to humans (when ingested, inhaled, or injected). From Jimson Weed to the deadly Rosary Pea, this work examines the 10 deadliest and most dangerous plants in the world, ranking each of the species according to their potential for causing human fatalities.

Selection Criteria

In order to rank the world’s deadliest plants, a number of basic criteria were necessary for the extents and purposes of this work. First and foremost, each of the plants discussed below are ranked according to the overall potency of their toxins in relation to humans. Second, fatality rates based on consumption (ingestion), inhalation, or injection of these specimens is also considered. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, the average amount of time between exposure and death is considered with the assumption that no medical treatment (or care) was taken by an individual following contact with each plant. This final criterion is vital for this work, as a variety of antidotes (and treatment options) are available to counteract the toxic effects delivered by most plants.

While this selection process leaves room for potential flaws, the author believes that these criteria offer the best means for ranking the world’s deadliest plants.
