Comments about Desk Reference to Nature's Medicine - Hardcover:

Book is dated 2006. Since then research into natural medicinal plants has continued at a fast pace. Probably a thorough review is a good idea and would renew interest in this very useful reference book.
Especially I miss listings of very important plants like Moringa oleifera, Agave intermixta or antellarum, Cissus sicyoides, and Aloe arborescens (in addition to the very useful description of Aloe vera = barbadensis), all very useful in strengthening the immune system, preventing and even fighting if not curing different types of cancer.
