Risk warning over herbal medicine

Potentially dangerous herbal medicines could be on sale in Britain, the drugs regulator says.
The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency warned consumers not to buy a range of unlicensed products it suspects has reached the UK market.

The medicines - which claim to treat a range of problems from skin disease to indigestion - were found on sale in Canada containing heavy metals.

The MHRA warned they could cause nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.
