Also known as: Puffer fish, Puffers, Balloonfish

Where you find it on the menu: Top sushi places (dish is called Fugu).

How it’s prepared: Licensed chefs (with 7 yrs. of intense training) carve out the poisonous parts – very carefully.

How it kills: Fish contains a powerful poison known as Tetrodotoxin.

How you die: Victim is paralyzed and eventually dies from asphyxiation.

Possible cure: Nothing. Zippo. All docs can do is keep you stable ‘til the poison is out of your system.
