Traditional Chinese Medicine and Tiger Bone

24 June 2007 

In a recently released question and answer paper, the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) industry cleared  misunderstandings about medicines manufactured by them and the use of tiger bone. The TCM leaders stated that they have "moved beyond the tiger bone and are not requesting any reopening of trade in tiger bone", as "effective alternatives to tiger bone are widely available at reasonable costs".In addition, TCM maintained that the "pressure to reopen China's tiger bone trade came from tiger farm investors who hope to capitalize on rekindling the Chinese public's demand for tiger bone wine as a health tonic."
