Researchers in Russia have revived a fertile plant from the remains of 32,000-year-old fruit that was found buried within the fossilized burrows of ancient squirrels deep in the Siberian ice.

Sounds kinda dangerous.
What if the plant produces toxins or something that is potentially lethal to humans because we havnt built up an immunity to it.

You're right, there is a chance of allergic reaction.

In the news today, Russians are still fighting to control an outbreak caused by what is now been named the Armageddon Flower, a prehistoric plant brought to life in a lab just 2 years ago.

Once the plant took hold it literally multiplied at astronomical rates attacking competing plants with a toxin that is produced in it's roots and saturates the soil as it spreads.

It is said that 40% of all other vegetation in Russia and parts of the Ukraine have now been desroyed and or infected with the toxin.

In a rare display, Moscow has reached out for help to stop the spread of the invader that was once deemed a historic success.

Russia has been put in literal lock-down as other countries are deeply concerned about the world crop/food supplies should this killer flower spread it's seed to other continents.

The only saving grace, winter is just a month away. That's when the plant goes dormant and allows for a few months to develop something to fight the onslaught.

Some reports have said that it's already too late though as unconfirmed reports claim sightings of growth in Afghanistan and China.

Computer models show the Armageddon Flower consuming all vegetation on the planet within 8 to 10 years.

I'm sure that's something the scientists took into account. I imagine this plant is being cared for in a controlled environment.

Was this an extinct plant? Or does a modern variety already exist?  The article didn't say...

This is so awesome, this fruit may be harmful or actually really good for humans, perhaps it has some sort of healing power or health revitalizing ingredients! I want one for sure!
