Oh! Berries Are They Safe To Eat?

Ahhh! Berries present themselves as tempting and appealing, but before you pop them in your mouth you should know certain berries are toxic. Yes some berries if eaten cause death. The berries on certain ornamental plants are dangerous. It only takes a few daphne berries to kill a child. Jessamine berries and red sage berries prove fatal if ingested. The berries and foliage of the Yew are fatal bringing death suddenly without warning. The berries of the mistletoe are medically recorded killers of both children and adults. All parts of the Nightshade are fatal, but it is their beautiful berries which deliver the most toxin. Growing up in rural Oklahoma is a challenge to the exploring pallette. Looking back at my childhood and remembering drinking the honeysuckle’s nectar I fully understand that it was God guiding those little hands.
