From our regular book review column.
Throughout my medical training, the overwhelming opinion of my teachers has been that I should not recommend herbal supplements to my patients. Some have said it would be an ethical violation to do so, primarily because we physicians don’t know what adverse effects such herbs might have for patients. In spite of the opinions of these physicians and others, the public increasingly turns to herbal supplements for treatment.
