[e-drug] St. John's Wort

E-drug: St. John's Wort
Dear Colleagues,

A usually reliable US health newsletter reported this morning (July 
21, 2000) that St. John's Wort has been "banned" by the French Health 
Ministry and is to be removed from the market.

Could a French  colleague confirm this report?  Also, if this report 
is accurate could information be provided regarding the Health 
Ministry's reasons for banning the herb.

Best regards,
