    After 36 years of working as a full time ER physician, I only saw one plant poisoning of a child, and that was a mentally retarded child. There are a few poisonous plants such as belladonna, foxglove and castor beans, but most taste so bad that a normal child will not ingest enough to cause hadm. Even tobacco is poisonous, but, despite its common availability, poisonings from ingestion are not seen.
