Is menstrual blood poisonous?
Q: Is menstrual blood poisonous to plants, animals & human beings.Is it true that if a person consumes this blood he/she can die. Also is this the reason why the state of menstruation is considered as impure?As far as i know this is just a discharge of the protective lining inside the ovum alongwith some amount of blood. Please elaborate. Thanks & Regards,
A:In medical lingo periods have nothing to do with impurity. It is considered so because it is an excretion. It is composed of dead lining of the uterus, blood clots.
