WARNING- POISONOUS RAW ! Poisonous raw, but powerful healer when used right. Poke contains a compound, known as poke activating factor (PAF), which is structurally similar to interferon. PAF also functions like interferon, but unlike pharmaceutical interferons, PAF is not tissue specific. Therefore PAF works on multiple tissues, including the liver. but note it can be dangerous at higher levels. WARNING- all parts of this plant are poisonous if eaten raw. Boil the young leaves and stems at least twice or three times, throwing away the water from each boiling. The dark shiny berries are also edible if cooked. Do not eat the roots, they are poisonous, or any of the plant if red or purple is anywhere on the plant. Also only eat young leaves, not old ones. Know what you are doing with this plant!
