The Truth About Poinsettias

The poinsettia has traditionally been the poster plant for dangerous holiday toxins. However, this is a myth dating back to the 1910's after a young child passed away from supposedly consuming poinsettia leaves. After an autopsy was performed, the plant was found to play  no part in the  child's death, but the damage to the plant's reputation was already done. Studies done on the poinsettia's toxicity level have revealed they are only mildly toxic id consumed and will maybe result in only an upset tummy.
