Our expert says:
I must admit that I have not heard that fresh basil can be harmful and needs to be avoided by people with liver problems. As is the case with all diet- and lifestyle-related practices, moderation is the key. So don't go overboard with the basil, just have it now and then, not every day. If your husband is sensitive to alcohol and sugar-problems, I think he should try to switch over to non-alcoholic beverages like non-alcoholic beer and low-sugar drinks. You could put this question about the basil to a herb expert or phone Margaret Roberts, the herb guru.
