I can understand that Chinese medicine is mysterious, but if it is so great, why do Chinese citizens die younger than western people? If it makes the Chinese people healthier, why is Chinese medicine not recognized world wide, as a means of extending life? Presently Canada has 15% of the population over 65 years of age. The USA has 12% of it's population over age 65, and China has only 7% of its population over age 65. Apparently there is a misconception among Chinese people that Chinese medicine is better than Western Medicine!

I think you may have a misconseption about Chinese medicine.Medicine including thousands of species and most importatnly,it helps us cure some disease or just tells more people about the common sense of health promotion.There isn't a strong relationship between longer life span.The figure you give me does not makes too much sense,too.And i do not think that i will compare which is better between western and chinese medicine.They all have some effects at a certain level.It's not all purpose after all.

I was answering your post because of the misconception you have about Chinese medicine! You made it sound as if Chinese medicine will cure all diseases, and that the Chinese people are a healthy nation because of their Chinese medicine. Obviously, if this was the case, there would be more Chinese people alive after age 65 in China, than in Canada or the USA. The figures I quoted make sense, and are on the Internet for everyone to see. I asked 2 questions which you could not answer! Then you finish by stating, " It was not the purpose at all!"

Why you keep camparing people to US or Canada? I didn't mean that everyone would use medicine and i also didn't say it would cure all and it's all purposes!!! This doesn't has anything to do with lifespan and also i'm not promote or boast how great it is,i just state my own opinion,no need you alien to tell me what i should think about my thing. Plus,your questions doesn't worth answering cause you wanna fight.

I do appreciate the medicines if it prescribe by a Chinese friend whom i trust. It is important for me to know the content and it's side effects. If i take it without knowledge it's like killing my self slowly specially now the government found out that there products contains toxic chemicals and still out in the market. I am amaze of their products especially herbal medicines. A close family friend advice me take their medicine to be asthma free and when i ask them what is it it's a powdered flying lizard dried under the sun . I refuse.
