Is Traditional Chinese Medicine for the Better, or Worse?

- Everyday people hear natural is better, well it isn’t. A treatment for a disease with Western medicine sounds like it has more serious side-effects, but the truth is that Western medicine is just more upfront about it then Traditional Chinese Medicine, TCM. Mislabeling is just one of the many problems with TCM. Even though Traditional Chinese Medicine is more natural and has less side effects, TCM should not be used instead of Western Medicine because TCM is increasing the threatened and endangered species list, can be harmful to the planet by increasing pollution rates, and can be detrimental to humans....   [tags: treatment, medicine, side-effects]

In just the first 10 months of 2013, that number has reached 790 (para. 13). Poaching is on the rise especially for iconic species such as elephants and rhinos.
