Well, I think you've got the answer there, Rose, which is that it's all about good parenting and education. I spent all my childhood grubbing about among berries, fungi and so on, as did many of my friends, without any ill-effects. The answer is to get closer to the plants rather than further away from them. I'm more concerned about what many people deliberately give their children to eat!
