Film story truth

What we have seen in movies is not wrong. Actually, in the olden days, the king-maharaja used to keep poison in his diamond ring. Therefore, as soon as an enemy imprisoned him, he would have killed himself by eating the poison kept in the ring. The same thing is shown in movies as well. Just the audience does not get its full truth. That's why it is just a myth that diamond contains poison and licking it leads to death.

What does science say?

Let us tell you that diamond is an allotrope of carbon itself. Each of its atoms is firmly attached to the other. It is not possible to eat it by chewing it. But if it is crushed, it disintegrates like glass, which can cause many wounds inside the body if swallowed. Apart from this, if a diamond is swallowed, it can also get stuck in the alimentary canal, which can be the cause of death of a person. Science says that diamond is the hardest substance in nature made of carbon, swallowing it can put you at 35 percent risk, but not die.
