A Saudi consultant warned of a famous tree in the Kingdom, which spreads in wild areas and its leaves secrete a substance that may blind people immediately.
During a video clip posted on his account on the micro-blogging site “Twitter”, Dr. Hafez Al-Falih, a consultant ophthalmologist and LASIK in Saudi Arabia, warned of the dangerous tree.
Al-Falih revealed the name of the dangerous tree that spreads in the wild areas of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and is known as the “Ethehr”, and stressed that this tree can blind people.
He stated that the tree, through its leaves, secretes a dangerous milky substance that is very harmful to the eye, and if you touch it or enter it, you may blind.
Al-Falih explained that the milky substance has a harmful effect on the cornea of the eye, advising that adults or children should not approach it.
