    Review on Some Natural Toxins in Food Plants Background Toxic food components of plant origin may be low-molecular-weight endogenous toxins or products of secondary metabolism. Products of primary metabolism are involved in energy metabolism, such as photosynthesis, growth, and reproduction. The macronutrients and micronutrientsFile Size: KB. Venomous animals, poisonous plants, mushrooms, and substances produced by microbes, inflict considerable damage to humans and other animals throughout the world. In scientific lingo, the entire subject is referred to as toxinology and the injurious natural substances as toxins. Thus, toxinology is a subset of the broader discipline of toxicolo.

    Toxic compounds are produced by a variety of plants and animals. Natural toxins may be present serving specific function in the plant and animal or evolved as chemical defense against predators, insects or microorganisms. These chemicals have diverse chemical structures and are vastly different in nature and toxicity. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
