Is the root edible? I love parsnip.

I looked for you to see if the root is edible and it is. I was shocked though, to find out that by touching the plant, and then being exposed to light, that it will cause burns and blisters on your skin. Walking though a patch of this weed with shorts on is a big mistake.

All this sounded familiar. We use psoralins in the treatment of psoriasis. Check out this link: http://www.psoriasis.org/treatment/...herapy/puva.php

Another light triggered substance, not found in nature, and used to treat skin cancers. That's cool.
