When outside please be aware of the dangers of the following plants:

Giant Hot Weed, Wild Parsnip, Poison Hemlock

There are chemicals in these wild plants that cause what dermatologists call "phyto-photo-dermatitis."  There sap, in combination with moisture and sunlight, can cause severe skin and eye irritation, painful blistering, permanent scarring and blindness.    Contact between the skin and the sap of the plant occurs either through brushing against the bristles on the stem or breaking the stem or leaves. Blisters appear a day or two after sun exposure.  Soon after blisters rupture and the skin begins to heal. These plants poses a serious health threat.
