Ivy + Toxicity = Healthy Breasts


The berries are moderately toxic to humans, but are very bitter, so poisoning is rare. Ivy foliage contains triterpenoid saponins and falcarinol, a polyyne; falcarinol is capable of inducing an allergic reaction (contact dermatitis) in some people. It has also been shown to kill breast cancer cells.[11]
