According to information published in the National Center for Biotechnology Information, about 8% of hospital admissions in the US are due to adverse effects or side effects of synthetic drugs. It states that around 100,000 people die each year due to these toxicities. It further states that thousands of users of over-the-counter drugs die each year even though these drugs are supposed to be safe for consumers.
On the other hand, it is very rare for people to die or become hospitalized from using herbs. Even the National Poison Control Centre of the United States does not have a section for side effects or adverse reactions to herbs in their database categories.
Many people choose herbal medicine because they believe plant remedies are free from undesirable side effects and they often cost very little or nothing at all. But according to some medical experts, the toxicity of herbs used as medicines needs to be looked at in context. They claim that although herbal medicines are generally considered to be safe, their effectiveness is questioned. In the conventional medicine world it is said that if a drug is effective, it would have side effects. Therefore, some persons in the medical industry believe that herbal remedies as drugs either have adverse effects or are not effective.
