In the news , there are big moves to make virtually all medicinal herbs (so think your St Johns Wort, Echinechea, Vervain, Aloe Vera etc etc etc) , illegal, in spring 2011 across the European Union.

At a sky high cost that very few companies can afford, and negating previous testing. So, none.

Personally I have had far better health results from herbal remedies than prescription (which invariably have been zero or negative).
If people are going to take penny royal or somesuch for an abortion or something then thats just retarded, but I wouldnt be working and studying and things if I had blindly relied on prescriptions after my breakdown in 2004. St Johns Wort was the only thing that got me on my feet (metaphorically speaking) again. As soon as I tossed the prescriptions and went onto herbal stuff, I was making a fast recovery. Same with everything from period problems to flu, for me over the years.
