Well if you go on a spirit walk let me know, I read that they would make you hallucinate.
Lets see nausea, visions and then death. If we can get past the death part we may be on to something.

No not really, my yard is full of this sort of thing and I aint tried any of them yet.

Barb I have actually tasted the things, they are nasty.
I would much rather have endive.

LOL!

How come folks don't freak-out about toxic beans and all the other toxic foods I posted above?

All those batches of toxic crock pot bean chili over the years.....

Y'all have no sense of adventure and quest for excitement!!!!

I read about toxins in undercooked or raw red kidney beans just recently. It came through on a bean recipe group I'm on. Comes from eating soaked dry beans that haven't been cooked yet or are partially cooked...not the finished cooked product, not beans from a can, not chile in a crockpot. I've never heard of anyone actually getting sick from eating beans like this. (myself, I can't stand kidney beans anyway) So, armed with this knowledge, I would heed the warning and always make sure the dried, soaked beans are fully cooked. You can always tell if beans aren't fully cooked.

So, this relates to eating tomato leaves that have been reported to make people sick? The correlation would be to heed the warnings and not eat them. I'd leave them for the worms...the moths are spectacular.

The danger is a myth.

Bertolli's book was published in 2003 (well before that came McGee's book) and since then countless people have made the sauce with no problems.

Carcinogenic aflatoxin in grains such as corn, sorghum, pearl millet, rice, and wheat......The toxin ergot in rye and other grains.
aflatoxins can kill you, if they infect bird seed the birds die.

ergot in rye is also toxic and is thought to have caused hallucinations that resulted in witch trials.

citing these 2 does not give me a warm and fuzzy feeling. personally i would not eat tomato or potato leaves.

Okay, well since this is the second time I'm putting on my mod hat here, I'm going to close this thread now. My main concern in the food forums is safety...and I think we've said all that needs saying...just saying...
