The Poinsettia is NOT Poisonous
The poinsettia is the most widely tested consumer plant on the market today, proving the myth about the popular holiday plant to be false: Scientific research from The Ohio State University has proved the poinsettia to be non-toxic. All parts of the plant were tested, including the leaves and sap. According to POISINDEX, the national information center for poison control centers, a child or pet would have to ingest 500-600 leaves in order to exceed the experimental doses that found no toxicity. As with any non-food product, the poinsettia is not meant to be eaten and can cause varying degrees of discomfort. Therefore, the plant should be kept out of the reach of young children and curious pets.
