any time in the fall or winter will work as long as you can find the roots.

What purpose does poke root serve? I love eating the greens in the spring but never thought the root had any uses.

New research has revealed that a possible CURE for Childhood Leukemia called (B43-PAP) is found in the common Pokeweed. Anti-B43-pokeweed antiviral protein, B43-PAP, PAP is a pokeweed toxin. The B43 carries the weapon--the PAP--to the leukemia cells. It has been touted as a smart weapon. In one study 15 out of 18 children who had participated had attained remission. The following is part of a repot from Parker Hughes Institute: The two parts of this drug are the B43 antibody (or anti-CD19) and the pokeweed antiviral protein (PAP) immunotoxin, a natural product in the pokeweed plant. B43 is designed to recognize specific B-cell leukemia cells just as natural antibodies attack and recognize germs. When the antibody finds a leukemia cell, it attaches and B43 delivers the other part of the drug, PAP. Inside the cell, PAP is released by the antibody and inactivates the ribosomes that make the proteins the cell needs to survive. With the cell unable to produce proteins, the specific leukemia cell is killed. More than 100 patients have been treated with B43-PAP and shown only minimal side effects.

Foxkidd44, you are awesome for posting this. This message really hits home tonight. My family is close with another family who is at Scottish Rite Hospital in Atlanta tonight with a 10 year old who is fighting for his life. His marrow transplant was yesterday and he's doing well. I will now have a much different opinion of Poke this spring. I pray that modern science will make this cure happen.
Thank you again for posting this reply.
Blessings~
