An earlier decision by Chinese authorities to ban the use of tiger and rhinoceros parts has been reversed, again allowing the use of these products for medicinal purposes.
Even most Chinese realize that powdered Rhino horn (very much like our fingernails) does nothing for the sex drive; but now new theories suggest that this fingernail-like product can help deal with cancer issues??? Another mythical belief?
I’m not sure what users think they get out of Tiger parts and products made from this animal.
The problem remains, China is by far the largest and dominant part of the market for these mysterious, and mostly superstitious , product benefits. Opening up ‘permitted’ uses of these things continues to add strain to efforts to stabilize the dwindling tiger and rhinoceros populations.
THIS IS NOT GOOD!
