Abstract

To distinguish curative properties from non curative properties or toxicity is not simple at all. A lot of times we come across a colourful and aromatic plant, forgetting that we might hold in our hand cure or poison. There is a very small difference between cure and poison and we must not cross this line. That is why exist famous pharmaceutical phrase: „The dose makes the poison“ („Sola dosis facit venenum“). Connection between dose and the effect which is expressed in the organism is the most important thing in toxicology. The main criterion of toxicity is dose, and under right conditions every substance can be toxic. The nine most poisonous plant species of Croatian flora were described in this report.
