Health Benefits of Dandelion and Dandelion Root

The Phenomenal Health Benefits of Dandelion and Dandelion Root

If you grew up in the Mid-West, you are probably all too familiar with the bright yellow flowers that pop up in fields and yards known as dandelions.  Many adults refer to dandelions as weeds and believe them to be a nuisance.  Some children look at them in awe and collect them to bring home to their mothers, while others use them to play a childhood game called “your momma had a baby and the head popped off”.  With this game, you pick a nice dandelion from the field, make sure it has a decent sized stem, then you run over to one of your un-suspecting friends, get their attention, hold up the dandelion where they can see it, and proceed to say, “Your momma had a baby but the head popped off!” while you simultaneously pop the yellow head of the flower off with your thumb – it then goes flying in the air, supposedly mimicking what would happen if someone’s head popped off.  You then laugh and your friend or whomever you just subjected to your stunt is also supposed to laugh.
