Don't be afraid.

This is in reply to Dipika C's attempt to create awareness among the public about poisonous plants in Bahrain (GDN, September 25).

The oleander is definitely a poisonous plant, but you see, only the pit (seed) is the poisonous part. Also, just for the information of the public, oleanders are a Chinese remedy for cancer patients. There are not many poisonous plants in Bahrain, but even if there are, the chances of even a minor poisoning would be rare.

So, the public need not be fearful of any poisonous things in Bahrain (not even Black Widows) and can continue living their daily lives normally.
