Parents - Beware of this Weed - Can Cause BLINDNESS

by Corey Carter

An alarming post came across my Facebook feed this weekend and after watching the video I decided I wanted to share the dangers of "giant hogweed" - which could cause BLINDNESS in somebody who touches it.

I know, scary, right?! Especially with kids...

After doing some research I found out that the video that I watched was from a TV station in Detroit from 2012...but that the weed and the threat are real. So while this might not be necessarily NEW info, it's still good to know.

(BTW, it HAS been reported in WISCONSIN and MINNESOTA. )
