ABSTRACT:
Toxins are naturally present in a wide variety of plants. Plants evolve to generate natural products as a means of defence against animals. Phytotoxins have been reported for many useful effects. Some plants produce toxins that can severely harm or destroy any herbivore. They can be modified to exemplify improved affinity and efficacy for health endorsement. Several of these plants are commonly consumed as food. They have been developed as an evolutionary movement for self-protection. These toxic substances when taken in considerable amount can be harmful to human health and cause problems. This review gives an outline on different plant toxins, their mechanism of action and different toxicological effects due to plant toxins.
