Buying organicaly grown, whole spices and grinding them yourself insures freshness and better taste.
You also are avoiding a whole lot of sh*t  too

We tend to think of ginseng primarily as a Chinese herb, however American ginseng is just as valuable and in some cases more suitable. Herbalgram has a very interesting report on the history of the ginseng trade between Colonial America and China http://cms.herbalgram.org/heg/volume9/05May/EmpressofChinaGinseng.html?t=1335902799

This is a very important story that involves all the usual suspects and highlights all that is wrong with our farming policies. Big corporate profits, shameless congresscritters, and the dangers of GMO all wrapped up in one big ball of crap. Instead of protecting the health and wellbeing of the American people, indeed the worlds people, congress just passed a bill protecting Monsanto.

The Safe Grapefruit?
HerbalGram
http://cms.herbalgram.org/heg/volume10/04April/SafeGrapefruit.html?t=1365540009
Researchers develop hybrid grapefruit that does not interact with enzyme vital to medication breakdown



In March 2013, University of Florida researchers announced the development of a new and potentially “medically safer” hybrid grapefruit (Citrus paradisi), which reportedly does not interfere with the breakdown of certain pharmaceutical medications.1 The well documented “grapefruit effect” can occur when a person consumes grapefruit or grapefruit juice within hours of ingesting certain pharmaceuticals, leading to potentially life-threatening side effects. Although still in its infancy, research on the new fruit — named UF914 — could allow people taking such medications to enjoy grapefruit again without fear of drug interactions, possibly by the end of this decade.

This is a really fun slideshow on botany and booze.  The new book "The Drunken Botanist" is a good read too.  "Wicked Plants" , by the same author Amy Stewart is funny and informational at the same time.

Abascal K, Yarnell E. Cilantro—culinary herb or miracle medicinal plant? Altern Complement Ther. October 2012;18(5):259-264.
http://cms.herbalgram.org/herbclip/469/111244-469.html
Cilantro is purported to remove heavy metals, especially mercury, from the body; however, there is very little evidence to support this claim and much skepticism of its validity. Conversely, cilantro may reduce uptake of heavy metals if ingested during exposure and may protect the liver from some toxins.  With increasing loads of heavy metals in foods, the authors suggest using cilantro especially when eating foods like fish, likely to contain mercury and other heavy metals.
