Chinese herbs are bad for you!

Nick Cohen posted a good article about homeopathy which reminded me of what happened to my supervisor, who is on leave right now after the birth of her son in August. She is from China and has been trying to get pregnant for many years now.

She had fibroid tumors. Being Chinese, she decided to go to a Chinese herbalist about her tumors. The herbalist gave her herbs to take. The herbs caused her tumors to grow 3 times their size in less than a month. She said she was in terrible pain as the tumors were growing. There was no room left in her uterus for a fertilized egg to implant itself. She had to go through therapy to shrink the tumors before the western doctors would begin infertility treatments.

She finally got pregnant after all the treatments stopped.

They are bad for you if you are a Chinese lady.

If you are a fibroid tumor, though,

yum, yum!

Gawd, Staggy, I never thought of that!
