    If elephant ear parts are ingested, the cause local irritation and swelling. The severity depends on how much was eaten and the size of the victim. Burning pain in the lining of the mouth and stomach may lead to diarrhea. If hands have touched torn leaves and then put to the eyes, irritation and burning may occur. It is considered less toxic than the common houseplant, dieffenbachia. https://medlineplus.gov/ency/article/002867.htm
