My curiosity gets the best of me, I feel like a cat but laugh like a hyena at commercials.

My favorite is the fish oil capsule available only by prescription — it can’t be bought at health food stores.
I wonder!

Is this a new species of fish recently discovered that is superior to the old fashioned fish?

Or is it a lack of knowledge of herbs and supplements versus man-made chemical remedies?

The American Botanical Council (ABC) has criticized and asked for a retraction from the Journal of the American College of Cardiology (JACC) regarding an article titled “Use of Herbal Products and Potential Interactions in Patients with Cardiovascular Diseases.” Some of the claims refer to toxic plants not commonly sold in the U.S. and are referred to as an herb. Example is a product from a Chinese toad mistakenly referred to as an herb. No response from JACC has been received.

Maybe it has been discovered more people are turning to natural treatment and the FDA decided to approve one to get started and get on the band wagon?

Try confiding in a Dr. of your taking herbs or supplements as the label advises one to do.

Ask the Dr. to explain ingredients of what he/she prescribes.
