Bamboo also unsafe

As a panda, I generally don’t need to worry about all the diseases that plague the meat in other animals. However, even bamboo has some toxic chemicals in it (along with flaxseeds, bitter apricot seeds, and cassava). But that is not all:

The CFS also warned against the natural toxins present in other commonly consumed beans and vegetables, such as green beans, red kidney beans, white kidney beans, soyabeans, ginkgo biloba, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, mustard and turnips.

"They should be cooked thoroughly to guard against the natural toxins," Tang said.

Certain fish also contains natural toxins. Consumers should properly refrigerate fish that may contain histamine toxin – such as tuna, mackerel, sardine and anchovy – at four degrees Celsius or below.

So much for the people that like to eat everything raw… seems like that is a bad idea with a lot of vegetables…
