I was puzzled why Rosemary was in the list, but when I googled it - it appears the essential oil, used in aromatherapy, can produce miscarriage.

It does also say
"It would be impossible to eat enough rosemary to be harmed but, clearly, misuse of the essential oil could be devastating to a young woman in the early stages of pregnancy."

I'm sure even the most innocuous of substances can be dangerous if over-ingested......you can kill yourself by drinking too much water, for instance, so I think some of these danger lists are a bit pointless.

I think cabbage contains something toxic aswell but you would have to eat quite a bit to be affected..........so if you try ......you may well be killed by your family or friends or run the risk of being killed in an explosion beforehand by the amount of methane you would produce Laughing
