Scientists quarrel over the Amur tiger: a study of their bones are recognized as useless

To study the “miraculous properties” powders and tinctures of… Amur tiger has commissioned researchers of the center “Amur tiger”. This is needed in the fight against the destruction of animals by poachers.

As explained “MK” Cate, the main consumers of dead animals are Chinese, which is made from tissues of animal medicines traditional medicine: all kinds of tinctures, ointments and plasters based on tiger bones. The Center believes that to defeat poaching will be possible by reducing the demand for drugs is questionable. And in order to conduct scientific counter-propaganda, we must first be firmly convinced that the bones of no avail.

However, experts of the Institute of ecology and evolution Russian Academy of Sciences believe that such a study makes no sense. The fact that tiger bones have no special miraculous properties, has long been known by the works of German and American pharmacologists. The Chinese usually add to the bones of camphor or musk deer (the musk gland of the deer, which most likely have anti-inflammatory action exerted on a body part and increase male potency.

Scientists hope that in any case, to destroy tigers for research is not required, because there has long been synthesized analogues of the substances contained in the bones of the Amur tiger.
