Oh, cilantro

Read this today, and might try to give the journal article a read. For now, this summary will haunt me and my love of cilantro.

“In the column I don’t mention the recent study from Reyes et al (last reference below), which reports that cilantro leaf extracts damage DNA, and therefore that cilantro could be a long-term health hazard. These are very preliminary findings and no reason for fans to give up cilantro, but it’s a subject worth following as more information comes in.”
