Re: Milk Thistle

Since most drugs are derived from plants in the first place(unless synthetic)needless to say any drug or herb can have potential side effects. Herbs are not without their side effects and some can have life threatening events just like the conventional drugs that are derived from them. Many people have ended up in the ER from taking herbs because they thought that since it is plant it can't harm you and found out the hard way.
