    Today someone told me that mango leaves are poisonous. Is this true.

    I sometimes put them in my compost heap or on the garden? Should i not do this?

    What else do i need to know about them?

    I live in India. Here mango leaves as a tea are considered good in stomach upsets, dysentry etc. and also used as an alternative to a toothbrush to clean teeth. So I dont think they are poisonous although you obviously wouldnt eat large quantites of them. I have put them on the compost for the last 3 years with no visible ill effect.
