Natural Cures Pack Dangerous Chemicals

Ayurveda, a healing tradition from India, is as old as the hills. And apparently ayurvedic medicine available through the Internet contains as many toxic metals as the hills, according to a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

A team from Boston University found that more than 20 percent of nearly 200 samples of various ayurvedic cures contained dangerous amounts of lead, arsenic and mercury. Sometimes the presence of metals was a result of sloppy manufacturing; other times the metals were added deliberately as part of the cure.

The authors - who are advocates of alternative medicine and include an ayurvedic practitioner as well as a lead poisoning expert from India - said they hope their report can help separate wheat from chaff, that is, the useful elements from the ayurvedic tradition from the real whacky stuff.


This is another reason I don't buy into natural remedies.  You never know what's in it, or to what degree.  Some people I know, use milk thistle for HEP C, even though there is no medical evidence that supports it helps anything.  If you check the label, there is a disclaimer which says "Not intended for use as a cure or treatment for any disease".  That should tell the story.  I think for those these things work for, it is a mynd over matter thing.
One has to 'believe' it works for it to work at all.  Not to mention the financial gain motive these maker have in marketing.  I doubt they have any true concern for peoples' lyves.
