Science State about Herbal Medicine

Some herbal medicine sometime contains toxic substance or drug effect to people. The danger of herbal medicine such as licorice, an Indian rennet and opium poppy, can be risk to contaminated with toxic mold. From the research of Fungal Biology said that the using of this plant must be regulated to control mold contamination.

Herbal medicine have spread out over the world about $60 billion, and now more people need because the growing of people knowledge and advertising on the internet. Beside the growing fast of herbal medicine trading, medicinal trading also grows and can’t be controlled.

Herbal medicine is prefer by mostly people because it usually cheaper than generic medicine that usually given by Doctor in Hospital or clinics. Sometime herbal medicine also more accurate than usual medicine that often use by Doctor on medical treatment. For example one of my experience of using Mahogany seed use for itch treatment that already 10 years sick.

The study of toxic analyses from Pakistan Province found toxic mold found on common medicinal plants in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, that the majority of people use herbal medicine. They found that about 43% of plants were naturally contaminated by toxin that is produced by molds that could be harmful to human health. The sample already taken fact 30% contained aflatoxins which are carcinogenic and linked to liver cancer.

Even the scientist found the fact like the above said but the trading of herbal medicine is goes on, and people still believe that herbal medicine still good for their health and their financial. Herbal medicine in china still become prefer because the people there have educated on using herbal medicine in order not contaminated by other microbe or mold.
