Europe to Ban Hundreds of Herbal Remedies

Hundreds of herbal medicinal products will be banned from sale in Britain next year under what campaigners say is a "discriminatory and disproportionate" European law.

With four months to go before the EU-wide ban is implemented, thousands of patients face the loss of herbal remedies that have been used in the UK for decades.

From 1 May 2011, traditional herbal medicinal products must be licensed or prescribed by a registered herbal practitioner to comply with an EU directive passed in 2004.'

  1. Actually, herbal remedies work.

    The reason why they are banning them is because as a result of people using herbal remedies drug companies will lose money. That's the real truth of the matter.

    Besides, many pharmaceutical drugs are synthetic or man-made forms of naturally occuring herbs and roots. This is just a fact.
