The Vancouver Sun reports in its Tuesday edition that a Richmond company that has been marketing shark cartilage as a treatment for cancer is now touting an herbal product as a cure for hepatitis C. Reporter David Baines says that Alta Natural Herbs & Supplements, which trades on the Alberta Stock Exchange, announced at a press conference on Monday that it will immediately start marketing Hepatico, an herbal remedy that was purportedly developed in Russia 150 years ago. Raymond Irvine, Alta's vice-president of finance, told 40 people attending the conference that studies indicate that Hepatico may be effective in eliminating the hepatitis C virus in as many as 91 per cent of the people who take it. Dr. Frank Anderson of Vancouver, however, a leading authority in liver disease, says there is no known herbal cure for hepatitis C. Alta sales vice-president Greg Shafransky has had prior regulatory problems and Alta recently hired expelled accountant Piers Vanziffle.
