There’s a plant in Australia that will make you vomit in pure agony just by touching it. Read below how it is called and a lot more info about it.
Its name is Gympie-Gympie.
With the exception of its roots, every single part of the deadly tree – its heart shaped leaves, its stem and its pink/purple fruit – is covered with tiny stinging hairs shaped like hypodermic needles.
You only need to lightly touch the plant to get stung, after which the hair penetrates the body and releases a painful toxin called moroidin.
Sometimes, merely being in the presence of the plant and breathing the hair that it sheds into the air can cause itching, rashes, sneezing and terrible nosebleeds, according to odditycentral.com
