The herb wintergreen contains salicylic acid, the active ingredient of aspirin. For many years we have been told that half an aspirin a day wards off heart attacks. Wintergreen is never mentioned.
Now we are told that a quarter of an aspirin a day can ward off bowel cancer. Still no mention of wintergreen.
There is no need to add to the profits of the pharmaceutical companies and risk the effects of additives in the pills.
Just plant some wintergreen.
