If your out to protect your liver from toxins, jog down to local
General Nutrition Center and pick yourself up some Milk Thistle.
The active ingredient is silymarin (sp?) which is also found in
artichokes. Mammals at a prophylactic dose of 400mg have been found
to be immune to Death Caps, the most poisonous mushroom in North

That convinced me.....
