I wouldn't eat it on a bet! My husband knew someone who was advised to take a poison ivy leaf, roll it up into a very small ball and swallow it. He swears it makes him immune, I say he's deluding himself and it's much too dangerous to try. It's miserable enough on the outside, I can't imagine having an itchy, weeping rash on the inside. Please don't try it.
