Hmmm....reminiscent of good old Thalidimide that was so popular in the fifties to treat morning sickness. Knowledge is power, for sure. The more we learn, the better we are able to treat appropriately. We definitely learn through experimentation and field trials.
Taking a quote out of an article can lead to it being taken out of context and may not summarize the article. It doesn't mean the quote is right or complete. And most importantly, if all of that is true and it's "just" 1%" it's possible that the years of growth has become more moderate because so many people have accepted the validity of herbs in their treatment programs. It would eventually have to slow down in growth and maintain it's foothold in the marketplace. That's just evolution and a broadening knowledge and acceptance of thinking outside the box.
I think it's kinda cool, actually, that the market IS expanding to include herbal therapies. 3 billion Asians can't be wrong!! But of course, I'm probably a little out on that figure. I'm sure you'll direct me to the article that defines it accurately though. :)
