Herbal and vitamin supplements should be treated as food supplements and not medications. The number of people that have been helped by supplements is in the millions worldwide. Europeans coming to this country always state how far behind we are in alternative and natural care and remedies. The Chinese have had it right for centuries. Our problem is that drugs and prescriptions are a big market and make large companies alot of money. To have free choice on alternative care would be a threat.
