Talk:A Modern Herbal

And why should we care?[edit]

Don't get me wrong, I actually like the article. What I think is missing is why we should care what a herbalist book from the 1930s claims about anything. Is it (still) a sort of go-to guide for appeal to nature chemophobes or a frequently cited source on altie websites? If so, I can totally see the relevancy of this article, but then I'd also suggest that this relevancy should be explicitly mentioned somewhere in the article. If not, then I might consider putting this article up for an assassination vote. ScepticWombat (talk) 10:28, 20 March 2015 (UTC)

A quick internet search suggests it's still tossed around the herbal remedy community as a common reference, particularly for newcomers. ikanreed You probably didn't deserve that 13:40, 20 March 2015 (UTC)
