so according to the list...

Nearly everything that grows in the natural world is "harmful" in some way or other if eaten enough of or rubbed against the skin for long enough ...

Snowgoose, I don't think that you are being criticised for posting the list, you obviously took time and trouble to do so. I think that is appreciated.

When something goes on a forum then generally, it gets discussed and that has to be a good thing, it allows people with experience to look things over and comment.

With my naturalistic vivs I have grown many plants over the years and so felt that I could make a comment or two, as did others.
This is how we learn and is the whole idea of a forum.
cheers arthur.

As people have said it's an impressive list, but not really intended for these purposes.

Also some people should read it more carefully, because many refer to certain parts of the plant. For example, in apple it refers to the seed, not the fruit or wood.

Still nice thinking! Top marks
