The crude ginkgo plant, fruit, pulp or nuts, also called seeds, are more likely to cause serious side effects than commercial extracts. They have been connected with allergic contact dermatitis, or skin irritation and itching that develops after touching the items. This component not only causes severe allergic reactions, but may increase the risk of cancer when consumed in large amounts, according to eMedTV.
Anyone wanting a good insight into Sheffield of this period should take a look through this book, its not just all glamour and glitzy self praise about being a superstar London club owner, but actually the first half of the book is an extremely well written account of Sheffield socio cultural life.Great read, and revealed some aspects of Sheffield culture of the 60’s I never knew really existed here. Learnt a few things about the Penthouse (later REBELS) club I never knew about, in that it was not the glamorous “London comes to Sheffield with class and style” club it was supposed to be, but a rough and ready venue with a real reputation for fighting and violence.Originally posted by mojoworkingYes, it’s a fascinating read from a Sheffield point of view. But, as we’ve discussed here before, there are several glaring spelling mistakes relating to place names etc in the book (eg “Rivilin” instead of Rivelin).The mistakes are no big deal in themselves, but a decent proof reader (preferably one from Sheffield) could have quickly fixed them and made it an even better book.Good point, I noticed the spelling errors and quite a few geographical errors as well, ie The Penthouse club had a view overlooking the High Street, which it did not, it overlooked the road that runs through the Markets.Originally posted by goldenfleeceGood point, I noticed the spelling errors and quite a few geographical errors as well, ie The Penthouse club had a view overlooking the High Street, which it did not, it overlooked the road that runs through the Markets.Hi Goldenfleece ,In a thread about the Penthouse you menntion the boarded up windows at the far end which must of looked out onto the Haymarket and possibly the bottom of the High Street depending of course as to when the buildings across the road were built, although I’d never of described the Penthouse of having windows giving a very scenic view.Got one on Amazon a while back.
