Ginkgo Biloba linked to Cancer in bunk government toxicology study.
Ginkgo biloba, the popular dietary supplement purported to have memory-enhancing properties, has been linked to cancer in rats and mice, according to a new government study.

After administering ginkgo regularly to rodents over a two-year period, researchers at the National Toxicology Program (NTP) found that the animals were more likely to develop thyroid and liver tumors than those who did not receive the plant extract, or who received low doses.

In a shorter three-month trial, rats and mice who were administered ginkgo displayed characteristics that predict tumor growth.

Many Ginkgo Extracts Safe, Says Herbal Science Group

ABC emphasized that the Chinese ginkgo extract manufactured in Shanghai is not consistent with any compendial botanical and chemical standards for quality as set forth in various official pharmacopeias and does not conform to the well-established chemical profiles, quality, and purity of the leading, clinically tested ginkgo extracts produced by the pioneering Willmar Schwabe Pharmaceuticals of Karlsruhe, Germany, and Indena SpA in Milan, Italy. The ginkgo used in the NTP study was manufactured by the Shanghai Xing Ling Science and Technology Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd.

“The ginkgo extract used in this study is different from the high-quality ginkgo extracts used in published clinical trials showing safety and various beneficial activities of ginkgo,” said Mark Blumenthal, founder and executive director of ABC. “That is, the Shanghai ginkgo extract used by NTP does not represent the quality of German ginkgo extract that is the world standard for ginkgo. It is highly unfortunate that NTP chose to use this ginkgo extract as it means that the results of the NTP’s studies are not applicable to the standard-setting ginkgo extracts.”

In addition, ABC noted that the dosage levels administered to the test animals was significantly higher (up to 55-108 times higher) than the levels of ginkgo extract that are normally ingested by consumers (120-240 milligrams per day), as calculated by ABC’s consulting toxicologist.

It doesn't even have that so another reason to not bother taking it.

In fact, it doesn't really do anything.

Well, that didn't take long at all did it.

Consumer group wants Ginkgo biloba pulled from food products

A consumer interest group wants the federal government to pull products that contain the herbal extract Ginkgo biloba from the marketplace, pointing to studies that show it could cause cancer.

The Center for Science in the Public Interest, a nonprofit health advocacy group, is warning that extracts of the plant can cause cancer and are not safe. The group wants the government to make sure that Ginkgo is removed from food and drinks.
