just looked it up on wikipedia, great web site that one
Last paragraph interesting, so who is going to hang it over their door

Mistletoe is the common name for a group of hemi-parasitic plants in the order Santalales that grow attached to and within the branches of a tree or shrub. Parasitism evolved only nine times in the plant kingdom;[1] of those, the parasitic mistletoe habit has evolved independently five times: Misodendraceae, Loranthaceae, Santalaceae (formerly considered the separate family Eremolepidaceae), and Santalaceae (formerly treated as the separate family Viscaceae). Although Viscaceae and Eremolepidaceae were placed in a broadly-defined Santalaceae by Angiosperm Phylogeny Group 2, DNA data indicates that they evolved independently.[citation needed]

The word 'mistletoe' is of uncertain etymology; it may be related to German Mist, for dung and Tang for branch, since mistletoe can be spread in the feces of birds moving from tree to tree. However, Old English mistel was also used for basil.

European mistletoe, Viscum album, is a poisonous plant that causes acute gastrointestinal problems including stomach pain, and diarrhea along with low pulse.[2]

It is one of these herbs that seems to have absolutely no practical use - this refuting the traditional herbalists' view that every herb and plant has some medicinal value.

Apart from the Wikipedia entry, there is also a site dedicated to mistletoe, http://www.mistletoe.org.uk
and, as well as the medicinal properties associated with it, identified by Brandi, a good search will show that it has been touted as a cancer cure.

Lieber Freund,
Danke fuer deinem Anruf. Ich habe sofort Nachforschungen veranlasst, die zu folgende Ergebnisse gefuehrt haben:
Mistel = имел (imel) ist eine Bille mit herforragende Eigenschaften (Viskum album - bot.):
- Vermindert dem hohen (normalisiert die niedrige) Blutdruck,
- Hilft bei unfruchtbarkeit der Frauen...,
- Mit ausgezeichneten Erfolg bei dem vegetativen System aller Menschen,
- Hift der Frauen, bei der hormonaler Disbalance,
- Bei Tumoren...,

In BG bekant als "rettende Bille".
Willst du Sie haben?
Z.Z. bin ich in Sofia - Tel. 00359 2 ......... .
Meine Famillie gruesst euch alle...

Maybe one of you can translate this.

In brief:
