Question: Are Sunflowers Poisonous?
Every month, I receive at least a few emails, asking if some part of sunflowers are poisonous. From petal to root, all parts are suspect.
In short, no. There is nothing poisonous about the any plant in the Helianthus (sunflower)
family. In fact, sunflowers offer medicinal as well as recreational benefits. The leaves are used in herbal smoking mixtures
, and who doesn't love a handful of seeds?
