Hello all! I heard a little bit of history of honest Abe today and found how plants were an important part of it...His mother died of "milk sickness". Thousands of people died from this before they figured out what caused it..When i tracked that down the disease was found to be caused by drinking milk or eating meat of animals that fed on "White Snakeroot"...thought to be a relative of the eupatoriums, i was a little disheartened to find that one of my favorite "Joe Pye Weed's cousins caused such trouble...Lots of toxic (and medicinal) plants out there.Check it out.
