Review quote

From the reviews of the second edition: "...a useful addition for individuals interested in the scientific basis of herbal preparations." -Doody's Book Review, Weighted Numerical Score:82 - 3 Stars "This book offers technical, detailed information on the clinical uses, efficacy, science, and projected safety of 17 of the most popular medicinal herbs, as well as of products that contain them. ... It is also a very useful compilation of things that have-or may have-gone wrong while taking herbs. If you want to rally either for or against the potential toxicity of herbs from a science perspective, this is your resource." (Melanie Cupp, American Herb Association Quarterly Newsletter, Vol. 23 (1), April, 2008) "This book consists of monographs summarizing the latest scientific findings about the toxicology and clinical pharmacology of 17 widely used herbs ... . The book's intended audience includes forensic professionals and 'researchers and clinicians interested in more context-oriented clinical information than is available in most 'herbal' references.' Chapter contents are based on original studies published in peer-reviewed journals, and written at a level for physicians, pharmacists, toxicologists, graduate students, and chemists. ... Summing Up: Recommended. All health science libraries; graduate students through professionals/practitioners." (N. Kupferberg, CHOICE, Vol. 45 (3), 2007)show more
