Doesn't answer A require us to take a greater leap in our thinking than answer C? We are looking for some evidence that herbal remedies would be harmful. Answer C's harm of a possible allergic reaction seems to me to be more definitive than Answer A's harm of simply neglecting a more effective treatment. If I have treatment 1, which is 60% effective, and treatment 2, which is 80% effective, am I actively causing harm by choosing treatment 1? It's not as effective, but to me that doesn't necessarily mean that it is actively causing harm, in the way that choosing a treatment that is 0% effective, and actually exacerbates the patient's condition, would be actively causing harm.
