Mason eats our lemongrass that we plant every summer! It is like bigger, thicker couchgrass. It never seemed to have any ill effect on him, but as it ages, the stalks get woodier. Mason is really only intersted in it when it has that grass-like texture. I have never heard that about cancer before....interesting!

Good question. I'll have to ask my mom about this. She is really into that sort of thing. I just picked up a booklet this morning about herbal remedies for cats and dogs but there is nothing about lemon grass. I'll check it out.

I looked in my big herb book by Greg Tilford, and couldn't find lemongrass....weird. Almost everything is in there. But lemongrass and Cleavers are two of Mason's favorite herbs. And he has never had an ill effect.

Sorry for my non-answer...I am bumping this thread up for you, though! I am curious, too, and will keep looking for any info.
