Alternative medicine is growing exponentially yet is essentially unwatched by the Federal Gov.t, which ruled in '94 to classify these products as "food" -- not drugs. In '97, more than $21 billion was spent -- more than the out-of-pocket expenditures for all hospitalizations in the U.S. The FDA will soon (mid-June) hold hearings concerning the regulation of alt. medicine, especially the "free-wheeling" dietary supplement sector. Traditional doctors argue that "natural does not mean safe." The Internet is significantly spurring growth in the alt. med. industry.
