Phil: It's the same thing your whole life: "Clean up your room. Stand up straight. Pick up your feet. Take it like a man. Be nice to your sister. Don't mix beer and wine, ever." Oh yeah: "Don't drive on the railroad track."

Gus: Well, Phil, that's one I happen to agree with.

There's a good reason for those rules... some of the most deadly plants are in the Umbelliferae family -- like poison hemlock.  You definitely don't want to go messing with that family unless you absolutely know what you are doing.  Same goes for the Solanaceae family too -- every part of the tomato plant is poisonous, except the ripe fruit.  The poison is destroyed by cooking however, hence fried green tomatoes.  Cassava root has to be processed into tapioca to remove the toxins.  The legume family also has very toxic members; the edible jicama root has seeds with the organic insecticide rotenone.
