'Animal Parts in Your Herbal Supplement??? Have you read the label on your herbal supplements lately? Despite their natural image, certain brands of supplements contain 'raw animal parts.' In a letter to the New England Journal of Medicine, Dr. Scott A. Norton reported that one product explicitly listed 17 cow organs, including lungs and brain matter. Other manufacturers, however, used terms that may slip by the average label-reader. For instance, Dr. Norton noted the consumer may not realize that 'hypothalamus' refers to brain tissue or that 'orchis' refers to bulls' testicles. Currently, there are no federal safety regulations to protect consumers who use herbal supplements.'
