No. Toad and the Super Mario Mushroom are distantly related species which diverged from a common ancestor in the early Atarian period. Toad lacks a functional gene, 1UP, that encodes the enzymatic product responsible for catalyzing the Super Mario reaction. Transgenic experiments that introduced a function copy of 1UP into Toad demonstrated that it is actually synthetically lethal with a second, yet-to-be identified gene. Further research is significanly hampered by the shortage of Toad embryos. Work is currently in progress to create transgenic Princesses that will produce Toad embryos.
If Mario ate Toad, then he'd be filled with man-mushroom and remorse.
