Really?  If so, then I should be dead.

I thought that just the leaves of Rhubarb were toxic.  Not the stalks

When I was young I used to chew on raw rhubarb all the time, and my mother
never did anything 'special' to it when she made rhubarb cobblers.  Just
threw the rhubarb into a pie crust with lots of sugar and baked.

So do I and my family have a special resistance to rhubarb poison?  Or am I
