[Market-farming] parsnips words of caution

I wonder if parsnips are related to Hogweed, a non-native species  
from Europe that looks like queen Anne's lace on major steroids-the  
plants can get 10' high and the roots go down a minimum of 4' and  
usually 10'+. If you get the sap of this stuff on your skin it causes  
2nd degree burns if exposed to sunlight within 24 hours of exposure  
to the sap.
