How toxic are cooked mature beans?

All mature beans need cooking but some some more than others.
Velvet beans need very careful cooking and and in parts of Africa people fear they might be poisoned and die so never eat them.
People can certainly get sick but it seems no research has been done on velvet beans for many years.
Can someone assure my SSA contacts that that they can eat cooked velvet beans and and not die?
