Can anyone find evidence that the plant Purslane is as healthy as the article claims?
WARNING!!! See the picture in the link below to compare the POISONOUS PLANT of HAIRY-STEMMED SPURGE or CREEPING SPURGE with the healthy Purslane!
DO NOT EAT CREEPING SPURGE or HAIRY-STEMMED SPURGE -- the stems are hairy and it lets out a white, milky substance when the stems are pinched and it can cause severe vomiting, diarrhea, and if enough is eaten, even death--
I almost ate the poisonous one, after looking it up on the net, but my husband noticed the poisonous plant before I swallowed or had chewed much, thank God-- and thanks to my husband as well. (!)
PLEASE be extremely careful if you plan to eat Purslane -- make sure that the stems are NOT hairy, that the plant leaves are thick looking and shiny, and that there is NO milky substance that comes out of the stem of the plant when you pinch it.
The article below tells of no studies done on Purslane.
Can anyone here find studies which substantiate the claims written in this article below?
