Study shows the Lotus flower is bad.
Lotus Flower Symptoms
Odysseus sent out 3 of his men to explore the island and when they came back they had forgotten completely about their goals. After he identifies the problem and warns his men not to eat the flower, they tie up the other three men and attempt to take them home anyway. Supposedly the flower causes memory loss on certain levels and you should NOT eat the flowers. Stay away from them at all possible.
Why Shouldn't You Eat It?
Scientists have confirmed that you should not eat the Lotus Flower because it is a very high possibility that you will experience memory loss. Many other side effects could very well be possible but have not been tested for or seen yet.
