Response to HuckleB (Reply #12)

Regulators are always captured by the industries they regulate. I know what the result would be of regulation--much, much higher prices, making herbs affordable only for the rich, and much less choice. Since it not a pubic health issue, let it be. I can barely afford beet juice as it is.

Food IS medicine, period. Since this is not a major public health issue, I do not understand the obsession with this topic here. I would feel totally scammed if the cost of my beet juice quadrupled due to being regulated. I can do without that kind of regulation.
