...Of course the exemples he gives of patients with epilectic seizures also state that those people were drinking 8-10 glass per day for many years...

What's surprising in this text is that M. Charpine think that the bad secondary effects doesn't come only from wormwood but from the combined effects of other herbs. He also say that epileptic seizures are very rare and that the most common symptomes of absinthism are cerebral idleness, reduction in energy, annihilation of the will, giddinesses, tremors, hébétude, somnolence and the loss of mental faculties.

Of course, my opinion is that this text is mostly applicable to alcoholism.
