Answer choice A says that there are more effective traditional medicines that are not being prescribed because of herbal medicine being prescribed. Even though traditional medicine may be more effective, the passage does not say all herbal medicine is ineffective. So if patients are deriving some benefits from herbal medicine (whether it be due to a placebo effect), is A not disqualified? We were looking for an answer choice that would show herbal medicine causes harm and even though traditional medicine may be more effective, it does not mean herbal medicine would cause harm necessarily.
