Siberian Chaga's 4600 year history

Chaga is documented as having a long history in oriental and russian medicine. It is touted by those that are selling it as being beneficial in a variety of health related problems. Most of these companies are multi level marketing companies and they are implying because of anecdotal evidence and ancient medical research that Chaga is a miracle healer or even a "Fountain of Youth". However, when you purchase any product for health from a marketing company one should be cautious. Where is the current medical research on Chaga? Why is it only allowed as a food additive in the US? Why has the US medical Establishment not supported Chaga if it is so good on tumors, cancer, viruses and the like? Why is more cancer study being done on mushrooms like shiitake and not chaga? These questions need to be asked and since the answers are not forthcoming we have chosen to no longer support chaga on this site.
