He heweth him down cedars, and taketh the cypress and the oak, which he strengtheneth for himself among the trees of the forest he planteth an ash, and the rain doth nourish it. Zohary (1982) notes that biblical berosh occurs more than 30 times in the Scriptures, but thinks of it as a collective term, meaning merely conifers with scale-like rather than needle-like leaves. He lists Abies cilicica, Cupressus sempervirens, and Juniperus excelsa as candidates for the word berosh. He interpreted it...

Common Names Cinnamon

Like spice dealers, I once aggregated cinnamon and cassia, so many of the common names, activities, and indications below could well apply to either species. I would not hesitate to use one or the other for the indication of one or the other. Many of the reported studies were, in fact, performed on purchased materials that may have been one or the other or a mixture of the two. Who really knows which they studied if the material they studied had already been reduced to powdered bark (JAD)....

Natural History Faba Bean

One study concluded that bees increase seed production by 15 to 20 . Honeybees were estimated to account for 80 of cross-pollination, bumblebees less than 20 , and wild bees less than 1 . A closed-flower phenotype (recessive to normal) exists which lacks the typical scent and is avoided by bees (Poulsen, 1977). Many fungi attack broadbeans, depending on the area where they grow. The following have been reported on broadbeans Alternaria brassicae var. phaseoli, A. tenuis, A. tenuissima,...

Extracts White Willow

Salicylates antiaggregant, antiinflammatory, antipyretic, antiuricosuric uricocsuric, and hyper hypoglycemic. The pro-drug salicin, which does not irritate the stomach, is metabolized to saligenin in the GI tract and salicylic acid after absorption. Products containing willow should preferably be standardized on their salicin content (CAN). The analgesic actions of willow are typically slow-acting but last longer than standard aspirin products (SKY). McCarty and Block (2006) note the potential...
