Abstract

Pyrrolizidine alkaloids (PAs) are common plant toxins produced by several genera of flowering plants, including Senecio, Crotalaria and Cynoglossum. Pyrrolizidine alkaloid-containing plants pose significant health hazards to animals and to people who consume "natural" herbal teas and traditional folk remedies.
