Birthwort (Aristolochia sp.)
From the classical to the late medieval period, women drank the juice from the stems of this plant to stimulate contractions during childbirth. However, modern research has shown that the roots and stems contain high levels of aristolochic acid, which is carcinogenic and damages the kidneys.

بدءاً من العصر الكلاسيكي وصولاً إلى أواخر العصور الوسطى، شربت النساء العصير من جذوع هذه النبتة لتحفيز الانقباضات أثناء الولادة. غير أنّ الأبحاث الحديثة أظهرت أنّ الجذور والجذوع تحتوي على مستويات عالية من حمض الأرستولوكيك، وهو مادة مُسرطنة وتضرّ بالكلى.
