Scary. Bet that wasn't even mentioned in the package insert.

BTW, Ma, I love ginger too! Will have to try your tea!

That I don't know, I go straight for my own drug book and eMedTV Home Page when I'm given a new medication. They give unbiased information on the meds.

Ginger is good medicine. I always run a knob of fresh ginger through the juicer in the morning to add to my apple/carrot/beet/lemon concoction. In addition to settling the stomach and thinning the blood, it also does wonders for arthritic joints.

I love it for my poor arthritic joints. Cuts down my use of OTC pain meds.
