This is off topic a bit but the medication for gout is called Colchicine
and is derived from Colchicum autumnale. I don't know if that's the correct
name or even if the epithet is correct. Colchicine was prescribed for my
husband's gout. We have since discovered the better alternative, at least
for him, is lime juice which dissolves uric acid, the culprit in gout.

Lesson for the day. Looking forward to the issue.
