For some people, food is an opportunity for adventure. Some even go out of their way to seek out foods that have an inherent danger level in its consumption. It's not steak and potatoes for these culinary daredevils - bring on the maggot cheese and the pufferfish!

You can always count the pufferfish to be on top of every list of dangerous foods in the world. Served as a delicacy in Japan, the fugu (pufferfish) contains enough tetrodotoxin to elicit mouth and speech paralysis in mere minutes. Seizures, convulsions, coma, and death follow in as little as 17 minutes or within 6 hours.

Foods don't always have to be exotic to be deadly. The cassava root can be purchased at a variety of grocery stores in the US to make tasty puddings and cakes. But when eaten raw or prepared incorrectly, it can kill a person by cyanide poisoning.
