I looked up "comfrey" on google because I wanted to know what it looks like. Curiously, in the first couple of links i found sites promoting its use as a digestive aid and for wound healing, and sites warning about how very toxic the plant is, and how you shouldn't ingest it or expose broken skin to it. I gather substances in it are toxic to the liver and promote cancers. (Of course, promoting cell growth might both promote cancer and also promote wound healing, I suppose.)
