After nearly 30 years, a popular Chinese herbal medicine made by a British company, called the Sage, has now been found in the United States.
It has been linked to a rash, a cough and a high fever, and was sold in a number of popular local stores for several years.
But it has since been pulled from shelves.
The story is part of a broader effort to expose the dangers of Chinese medicine and its links to the country’s booming counterfeit drugs market.
The Sage is a combination of herbs that were discovered by a team of British researchers in China.
They said it was one of the most potent herbs ever discovered in the country, with strong effects on the body and the nervous system.
The researchers believe it was used to treat the symptoms of a rare but serious disorder, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, which is caused by obstructive sleep apnea.
The disease can cause sufferers to stop breathing or to lose their ability to breathe.
According to a statement from the UK-based British Herbal Medicines Council, the product was made by the China Agricultural University, a small but flourishing academic university based in the southern province of Henan.
The Chinese government has long accused the university of making thousands of fake and adulterated herbal medicines, including the popular herbal medicine used in the US.
But the University of Birmingham in the UK said it had never produced the herb.
The university has said that the product is not a traditional Chinese medicine.
The British Herbals Council said that there is a growing body of evidence to suggest that some Chinese herbal medicines are not only mislabeled as herbal products but also contain counterfeit ingredients.
They have called on the British government to require the university to produce more information about its products.
“We need to get to the bottom of this,” said Michael White, the head of the British Herbs Council.
“These are dangerous, highly potent and potentially life-threatening products.
They can have devastating effects on people and can lead to a serious side effect that can lead directly to death.” http://www.washingtonpost.com/local/local-health-care/medical-school-fraud-studies-show-americans-are-over-billed-by-medical-students/2015/07/18/6fce2e6a-1fb9-11e3-8bac-cdda6a8a3f9e_story.html https://www:nationalgeographic.com/?q=americans+over+billed+by+medical+students&source=news&utm_source=google&utm=facebook&utm =twitter&utmcid=8173929069 A lot of us don’t realize that we’ve been overcharged by medical school students, according to the latest findings of an industry-funded research project.
Researchers from the University at Buffalo and the University Health Network conducted a study on the cost of attending an American medical school in the fall of 2015.
They looked at medical school tuition fees paid to students and their financial aid, as well as medical school admission rates and the amount of time spent in medical school.
The average medical school student, on average, spends between $40,000 and $65,000 in medical education.
While there is no guarantee that students will go on to become doctors, the study found that, if you add the cost to the total cost of medical school, the average student spends an extra $7,000.
And the amount spent on medical school is not just a financial burden.
“If you look at the number of doctors in the U.S., the median amount spent per year on medical education is $1,500, according the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
When you combine medical school with other types of expenses, including housing and child care, the median figure jumps to $2,300,” the report found.
It was the number one concern: “Medical school is the most expensive part of our lives.”
The study was released Tuesday at the annual meeting of the American Association for Public Health Policy.
