    Things that made you smile 6th Jan 14 at 1:31 PM
    We have a what's irritating you thread, and I think we need a thread for things that have made us smile, etc.

    Me - well, we have a puppy who is now 8 months. I let her out this morning and was hoping to keep the door open for her to come in. But it was too windy. I was stood by the door waiting for her, expecting to see her come down the steps.

    I then heard a tap at the door. She'd come down the steps, which I hadn't seen and tapped to be let in. She also taps to go out.

    Poisonous runner beans?

    When I grew them myself, I would eat loads straight off the beanstalk, raw.
    Still do, if I buy them in season.

    Not sure I'd be smiling

    HOPE I'M WRONG

    These aren't Runner Beans that you've FULLY COOKED and frozen yourself are they ?
    I guess shop bought OR just blanched if home grown ?

    Bailie is your dog ?
    Hope it's a really big one, not a tiny weeny thing, and had no more than a few fragments.

    You do know that they are POISIONOUS to BOTH HUMANS and DOGS until they been boiled for about 5 to 7 minutes.

    It's been suggested that frozen ones are worse than fresh off the plant because the cell structures burst releasing more of some specific proteins found in some plants, especially certain legumes, contained in a lectin called Phytohaemagglutinin

    Another one to add to chocolate, onions, garlic and grapes to mention a few

    The only info I can find about them being poisonous is about the seeds/pulses inside needing to be boiled. There are no seeds/pulses, just the outer green bit.

    Like Pyxis I also used to eat beans straight off the plant, as well as peas, I am not dead yet!

    As you say it's the "beany" bits.
    Of those you are likely to eat, Soya and "genuine" Kidney Beans cause the most upset.
    Quite unlikely to kill you, unless you ingest vast quantities.
    But will quite easily cause stomach cramps, nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea.

    Runner beans are a little less upsetting especially if they are really young tender "baby" ones that have not formed proper seeds (beans) inside.
    Don't think peas have anything to worry about.

    Of course, at the other end of the scale is the CASTOR BEAN from which we get Castor oil.
    A SINGLE bean is enough to kill an adult in a few minutes due to its RICIN content, it's thought that just one milligram is required.

    As it happens all my dogs had relatively small amounts of most of the "banned" foodstuffs over their lives - a bit of onion in leftover cottage/shepherds pie, plus garlic in chilli con carne, the occasional grape and a Kit-Kat at Xmas .....

    .... then again they were all 65 to 75 kg Great Danes
