Basil is Bad for You

I made myself a delicious tomato, mozzarella, and fresh basil from my herb garden salad for lunch today.  Apparently, though, I shouldn't have picked the basil.

Caleb:  Mommy, I'm still mad at you.
Me:  Why?  What's the matter?
Caleb:  You picked the basil and it's not good for you.
Me:  It's not?  I think it's fine.
Caleb:  No, it's not, and now your teeth are going to fall out.
Me:  Hmm.  (opens mouth) Have any fallen out yet?
Caleb:  Just two.  But wait.  There will be more.

Beware of the dangers of basil.
