Could someone put to rest the notion that fewerfew is or is not toxic
(e.g., as a prophylatic for migraine)?  I have witnessed roughly a 50:50
split of opinions on this question from other (many nonscientific)
sources.  However, one or two respondants cite a peer reviewed paper that
suggests the extract MIGHT cause irreversible damage to smooth muscle.

Thanks.
