In your article you mentioned that Avocado was in the same family as poison ivy. This is not correct. Persea (Avocado) is in the Lauraceae. Poison Ivy, mangoes, etc are in the Anacardiaceae.

Thank you. One of my sources listed it as in the same plant family, and I should have confirmed that it was true before including it in the article. Glad you caught that!
