Although the north is still cold, snow fluttering, Hainan is still shady trees, some fruit trees have been bearing small fruit.One of them, a small fruit called leprosy fruit, was recently named in Hainan.According to local media in Hainan, the spring season, wild vegetables and fruits are also edible, food-borne diseases have entered a period of high incidence, and people have recently caused biological poisoning due to ingesting poisonous leprosy fruit.In order to ensure the physical safety of the masses, we call on everyone not to eat leprosy fruit, if accidentally eat to immediately vomited treatment, and as soon as possible to medical institutions for treatment.Leprosy fruit named by hainan because of its “super” toxicity in our common plant castor toxicity is stronger, castor seed base of ricin and castor oil in the diet can cause of poisoning, studies have shown that need only 2-7 castor can make 4 to 7 years old children poisoning or even death, adults also need only 20 grains.Jatropha nuts are even more toxic than castor seeds, as two to three seeds can poison adults and seven to eight can kill them.A few hours after ingesting leprosy fruit, patients will develop symptoms such as headache, dizziness, nausea and vomiting, diarrhea, heat and chasm, as well as the discharge of soy colored urine, anemia, jaundice and other hemolysis symptoms.Some people who have been poisoned also show symptoms of dry mouth, flushed skin and dryness.What does a jatropha look like?Jatropha is the fruit of the jatropha tree, a small tree or shrub 2-5 meters high, with smooth bark and papery leaves, 7-18 cm long and 6-16 cm wide, bright green above and gray-green below, flowering from September to October.In folk, jatropha is also known as false peanut tree, smelly oil tung, water lacquer and so on.Jatropha berries are green when they are unripe and turn from green to yellow when they are ripe. The yellow orange orange has to look very appetizing, but in fact the jatropha fruit is not edible.It is not only the jatropha fruit that should not be eaten, but also the jatropha tree, for the whole plant is poisonous. The poison in the stem, leaves and bark is mainly in its rich white juice.Jatropha is poisonous, but it’s very useful, just like the castor bean, which has poisonous seeds, but it used to be grown in many places.What’s more, the jatropha fruit can be used to extract oil, just like castor seeds.The oil content of jelia fruit is very rich, up to 40%, and the oil extracted from the fruit can be used as fuel for diesel engines. The freezing point, carbon monoxide emissions and sulfur content of this kind of biomass diesel are better than that of domestic zero diesel.In addition, jatropha fruit oil is also a traditional lubricating oil and soap production raw materials.The residue left after the oil is pressed can be fermented and used as fertilizer, or dried and used as fuel to generate electricity.Where does our country have jatropha?The origin of jatropha is in the tropical areas of America, and it is now distributed in the tropical areas of the world, mainly in Guangxi, Hainan, Guangdong, Guizhou, Fujian and Yunnan.In recent years, Guangdong, Hainan have appeared because of accidental ingestion of leprosy fruit poisoning events, local leprosy fruit distribution of the masses must be careful, especially to remember to remind children not to easily try to eat wild fruit do not know.
