  Every spring, some incidents of sugar cane poisoning are reported in the media.

Good sugarcane, how can it be poisoned?

This has a lot to do with the sugarcane mildew caused by the season, and people do not exceed a certain discrimination ability.

  Sugar cane is generally available in autumn, but sugar cane is sold in many supermarkets throughout the winter and even in spring, so that people who like it can eat it at any time.

However, most of the sugarcane in the spring is in autumn. After storage for a winter, it is very easy to deteriorate, and a flocculent or fluffy white substance appears at the end of the sugarcane.

After cutting, the section will have red filaments.

Some people did not carefully select sugarcane when they saw it. After cutting, they saw red filaments and thought it was normal. As a result, sugarcane was poisoned after eating.

  Moldy sugar cane is very toxic. It contains a neurotoxin, 3-nitropropionic acid. The symptoms after poisoning are mainly damage to the central nervous system.

Then, after eating sugarcane for 2-8 hours, vomiting, dizziness, headache, visual impairment, stiffness of robes and limbs, etc. are the obvious symptoms of sugarcane poisoning, and severe coma and death will result.

  In fact, as long as you choose carefully when eating, you can completely avoid poisoning.

In addition, sugarcane is a very nutritious fruit, rich in iron, and iron has a certain therapeutic effect on iron deficiency anemia in women.

Therefore, sugarcane is also known as a “blood tonic”.

In addition, sugar cane is also the “cleaner” of the oral cavity. It contains a lot of dietary fiber. When chewing repeatedly, it is like brushing your teeth with a toothbrush, which can prevent the effects of oral bacteria.
