OriginEdit

Engelbert Kaempfer (1651 - 1716) was a German naturalist physician and explorer writer who resided in Japan in the 1690. During his time there he studied poisonous puffer fish, especially Fugu when a rash of suicides swept the country of people eating the deadly fish. Fugu can be eaten but the toxins are never fully removed so there are various reports on the effects of the fish. After collecting several samples of the poison Kaempfer attempted to discover an antidote however the only thing he could discover was physically removing the fish from the victim by inducing vomit, feeding the victim activated charcoal to bind with the toxin and putting the victim on life support until the poison has worn off.

EffectsEdit
