Would you like a taste of death?
Though considered a delicacy, fugu is one of the most lethal foods on the planet. Coming from the Japanese word for pufferfish, fugu is filled with the deadly poison tetrodotoxin — 1,200 times the strength of cyanide —
and must be prepared with painstaking care to ensure that only edible parts are served. Countries where this dish remains infamously popular have strict guidelines regarding the preparation of fugu, and chefs in Japan are required to have special certifications in order to work with fugu.
Fugu is the only food the emperor of Japan is forbidden to eat.
