The Mythical Mistletoe – The Toxins Could Save Your Life!

Mistletoe was considered a magical plant for ages. Science shows today that it has healing potential. Plus, it’s a great Christmas plant with some fun traditions. As an ecologist though, I also see its role in the community as one of the most amazing things.

Thank you to Dr. David Watston ( ) and Dr. Rob Salguero-Gómez ( for their kindness and guidance in helping me understand why mistletoe are so amazingly cool! #SantalaceaeScience
