Multitaskers: No, I'm not talking about ER nurses and doctors (and I used to be one of those, so I know), nor about computer geeks or people who work in busy, modern offices; nor about busy parents with professional responsibilities. No, I am talking here about herbs, which most of us take every day in our foods (and sometimes in our supplements), and don't even know it.
