Summary
Explains that if cattle eat the fruit of the zamia palm (macrozamia miquelii) they contract a disease similar to rickets - a loss of control over movement of the hind legs; although this plant is poison to human beings in its raw state, the Aboriginal people eat it after a preparation which involves pounding, soaking, and baking; the poison has never been satisfactorily identified
