In regard to the MHRA annoucement as on Infoworriers.com about the prosective banning of hundreds of classical herbal remedies, as per:
http://www.prisonplanet.com/europe-to-ban-hundreds-of-herbal-remedies.html.

Well, I was of course, onto this months ago, since I am a regular user of such things and followed the work of Master Culpepper in the early days ... (pause for idle staring into space, whispering -"what"?)

Back in early thru mid September 2010 I got in contact with the MHRA regulator asking for specific information. I just found it again, hiding in the inbox, and here is the info.
