Castor oil, long used as a laxative, muscle rub, and in cosmetics, is made from the seeds, but the ricin protein is denatured.

Some poison plants are ingested by accident, while browsing, but a major reason for the toxic poisoning of goats comes as a result of starvation.

As with all nutritional toxicology, it is the size of the dose, and the poison present in the plant that will determine whether the animal lives or dies. plants containing poisonous substances. By trial and error, humans in the early times learn to distinguish between the parts of a poisonous plant that could be harmful or even fatal and the others that could be ingested safely.

Hence with time, poisoning was developed as a method for murder and suicide. Quantitative analysis of plasma, liver, and urine, of rats acutely poisoned with ricin, along with the observation of the reduced respiratory quotient of the liver, can be used to conclude that: the toxic action of ricin may be explained by an interference with some.
