The search term ‘bear gall bladder uses’ recently spiked on search engines when two stories recently mde national news:

On Nov. 19, the remains of a mutilated bear cub was found by a road crew in Triangle , Virginia. Authorities discovered the bear cub’s gall bladder had been removed.

On Nov. 23, a news outlet in Vietnam reported a new campaign attempting to change attitudes and behavior toward the uses for bear gall bladders and bile.  According to VOVNews, “An Education for Nature Vietnam (ENV) survey of more than 3,000 residents of three major cities – Hanoi, HCM City and Da Nang – shows that 22 percent of people interviewed said they have used bear gall.” ENV recommended that Vietnamese agencies crack down on the laws protecting wild animals, including these bears, and promote their enforcement as well as scientific research on bear conservation.

Uses for Bear Gall Bladders & Bile:

There are apparently several bear gall bladder uses that many internet users are trying to learn more about. Bear gall bladder bile is used in Eastern medicine for a variety of ailments, including diabetes, liver disease and heart disease.

‘Bear gallbladders and bile are used in traditional medicine to treat a variety of illnesses including fever, liver disease, convulsions, diabetes, and heart disease,’ says The Humane Society’s website. ‘Clinical research analyzing the medicinal properties of bear gallbladders indicates that they may be effective for treating a number of ills. However, other natural substances already accepted in traditional medicine, as well as synthetic substances, can be substituted.’

Unlawful Use of Bear Gall Bladders:

We’ve all heard of organ trafficking on the black market, but bear gall bladders? According to The Humane Society, bears now have to worry about more than just hunters because their gall bladders can fetch about $3,000 in Asia, where the organs are used for medicinal purposes. 

Bear gall bladders aren’t the only bear parts that are used to treat these common ailments. In some cultures, people who eat bear paws are believed to take on the strength and vigor of a bear and eating bear meat is thought to enhance one’s virility. Oh and don’t forget pigs fly!

So are these bear gall bladder uses for real or just something crazy people have been searching for on the internet? I’ll stick to synthetic substances, thanks.

  5. Get testimonials from the clients you already worked with,

    While effective SEO needn’t be difficult, it does take work.

    Before making this decision, be sure to carry out a market analysis beforehand and pick the one

    services’. Any business to conduct business on the web should have a web site created especially
    for creating an awareness of their products and ser-vices
    to the planet at large. Depending on how how much time you
    have you can do this about once per week. A reputable SEO company won’t have any qualms about connecting potential clients with former ones.

    microscope because she has succeeded in the world of television and it is hard for
    people to accept her in the world of music. The news started spreading yesterday from TMZ that Andrey Hicks
    has proof he had an affair with Kim Kardashian. When all the things that you do is
    analyzed under a microscope, photographed, recorded in gossip columns, marketed as news, you need to definitely be
    primed for just about any situation. While many celebrities purchase
    their Louis Vuitton handbags from regular LV
    stores across the country, there are also an elite few

    Admiring the persistence you put into your blog and detailed information you
