Just a reminder....

These pages are presented solely as a source of INFORMATION and ENTERTAINMENT and to provide stern warnings against use where appropriate.  No claims are made for the efficacy of any herb nor for any historical herbal treatment.  In no way can the information provided here take the place of the standard, legal, medical practice of any country. 

Additionally, some of these plants are extremely toxic and should be used only by licensed professionals who have the means to process them properly into appropriate pharmaceuticals.  One final note: many plants were used for a wide range of illnesses in the past, but be aware that many of the historical uses have proven to be ineffective for the problems to which they were applied. 

Remember my friends:  Don't Be Stupid.  Seriously, I won't feel sorry for you if you do something stupid with a poisonous plant.  If you choose to grow something poisonous, you must always be on your guard. 

It is a responsibility, not a joke and certainly not a game.   Growing dangerous herbs is not for the casual gardener.  Know what you grow and know how to handle it safely.  Keep all dangerous plants out of the reach of children, animals and idiots.
