    I have eaten pokeweed leaves all my life, from early childhood. Cook like turnip greens. Delicious. I don't know what all the fuss is about. My mother discarded the water and then re-cooked them, because she had heard they were harmful. I doubt this was necessary. Pick small leaves while they're tender.

    I swallowed 1 berry whole (and did not chew the seed which is poisonous) but ok if swallowed whole, it produced a profuse sweat in me for about 24 hours which is known as cleaning out the toxins. It centered on my lower back and healed the remnants of my back which had gone out a couple of months earlier. After the toxins were out, the berry produced no more symptoms at all.
