Press Release - response to Daily Mail Article 25-04-2023

Flawed study promotes unfounded concerns over safety of Chinese herbal medicines for women in pregnancy.

The study ‘Maternal traditional Chinese medicine exposure and risk of congenital malformations: a multicenter prospective cohort study” published recently in The Daily Mail has met with widespread criticism by UK academics and the leading regulator of the practice of TCM, the Register of Chinese Herbal Medicine (RCHM).

Further to this, the study fails to distinguish between highly trained professionals that adhere to a global 21st Century standard of safe practice, and those practicing without those standards and safeguards, or potentially self-prescribing.
