Kidney beans are high in a toxin called Phytohaemagglutnin. A normal cooked
serving of kidney beans would be one cup, and this amount of raw kidney
beans will cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and possibly, even death. In no
way should you try this at home. Cooking kidney beans effectively
neutralizes the toxin, which is why you should always verify your kidney
beans have been cooked properly; in fact do this with all red beans. All
beans contain this toxin, but most contain it in a very small dose, to the
point that it would take abnormal consumption to have lasting effects. But
the red beans, such as kidney beans, have it in a much higher concentration.

“Bad men need nothing more to accomplish their ends, than that good men should look on and do nothing.”
