Love them or hate them, there is no question that dandelions are beautiful if you take the time to look closely and they have numerous, proven health benefits. Be sure to consult with your physician before taking or eating dandelions as they can interfere with certain drugs by increasing effectiveness or increasing side effects. Be careful not to eat them if you know they have had pesticides or other chemicals applied to them.
