When Chinese manufacturers become enamored with Western 'Sin'thetic medicine

HEALTH CANADA WARNS ABOUT SLEEPING CAPSULES

Dec 27,1997 OTTAWA (CP)- Health Canada is warning consumers not to use Sleeping Buddha capsules, a traditional herbal remedy manufactured in China, which have been found to be contaminated with prescription drugs.
The drugs flurazepam and estazolam-from a class of drugs called benzodiazepines-have been found in the remedy, and pose a risk to people who use them without consulting a doctor first.
Health officials say these drugs could pose a serious risk to pregnant women. Sleeping Buddha has not been approved as a drug for sale in Canada.

Add this to the extensive analysis of raw chinese herbs conducted at a provincial laboratory in 1995 showing levels of DDTs, DDEs,HCBs and other nasty organochlorine pesticide residues, at times even exceeding (safety?) levels set by the Feds.
And note that in the same batch we blindly included a Certified Organic gala apple and C.O. Valerian: both came out clean as a whistle. Yet more evidence for supporting C.O. herbs, foods and fluids.

Except for a certificated Organic Ginger and Siberian Ginseng from China, I can no longer recommend any botanicals or patent medicines from Mainland China.
