At the Texas Medical Association Library, we just received our long-awaited copy of The German Commission E Monographs: Therapeutic Guide to Herbal Medicines  published by American Botanical Council in Austin, TX.  

Per comments in the foreword by Varro E. Tyler, PhD, ScD, the monographs "represent the most accurate information available in the entire world on the safety and efficacy of herbs and phytomedicines.  As such, they are worthy of careful study by anyone interested in any type of drug therapy.  Ignorance of the Commission E monographs is ignorance of a substantial segment of modern medicine."
