Herb-Drugs from Rinfocan

This Canadian Pharmaceutical site has a list of abut fifty medicinal herbs, with reasonable cautions listed for each. The information reflects Canada's sane approach to regulation, accepting traditional usages without requiring extensive clinical trials, while also listing common-sense cautions. However, this list falls woefully short in the area of contraindications during pregnancy. Many of the herbs on the list are so contraindicated, but the source fails to mention the fact. The contraindications on this list appear to be derived in part from German government plant monographs.
