Killer Chamomile Tea

No laughing matter here. UPI reported recently that a 70-year-old patient suffered internal bleeding after drinking chamomile tea and using chamomile lotion while taking warfarin, an anticoagulant medication.

A study, originally published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal, flags garlic, onions and ginger as other foodstuffs that shouldn't be mixed with warfarin.
