Dear Natalie there are many forms of mistletoe and yes most of it is poisonious but they extract certain chemicals out of it and inject it into cancerous tumors to help shrink it. I'm not a doctor but from what I read most medicines come from herbs and plants.
Every thing in moderation is alright but to the excess is bad or illegal.
hope this helps.
