If you look on the internet there are all kinds of claims that Cilantro can chelate mercury from the body, including the brain. I have not tried to look and see if there is any really good scientific studies for this or not.
But I thought it was interesting.

I do use a lot of cilantro and coriander in my cooking - because we like it, so thanks for some more recipes.

I also like parsley too --- and the truth is I can exchange one for the other and not notice the differences in them. I wonder if I just do not have a sensitive enough mouth??????

I do like growing and using parsley better than cilantro though because parsley leaves are easier to harvest, denser and less stemmey.

We have opposites at this house, where I love cilantro and DH hates it (he says it tastes like dirty socks). Cilantro is the preferred green for our house bunny, so I would like to have a large crop - instead of the usual dead pot - of it.
