Poison Quizzes & Trivia

Take the Poisoning symptoms and effects quiz trivia. Animals and plants exist co-dependently in their ecosystems, but that does not mean we can consume just about everything nature has to offer. The body rejects substances that are harmful to it, or the organs shut down, and one dies. One of the signs of poisoning is a stomach ache, dizziness, among others.
