at the same time it is taking away peoples rights to use medicines that have proven safe and effective (in a system the fda and who does not approve of) which are often much better for you, have minimal side ef$ects, and account for almost no deaths annually.
What terrible affects do you expect from feeding animals herbs?
Or is your point that you would much rather humans died as part of the testing

This regulation is about what is allowed to be sold as a medicines in shops, not what you are allowed to eat as an individual, you are perfectly free to pick whatever you want from a forest / your garden and eat it, the EU isn't going to stop you.

I hope to hell we can fight this:
Big Pharma has almost reached the finish line of its decades-long battle to wipe out all competition. As of 1 April 2011—less than eight months from now—virtually all medicinal herbs will become illegal in the European Union. The approach in the United States is a bit different, but it's having the same devastating effect. The people have become nothing more than sinks for whatever swill Big Pharma and Agribusiness choose to send our way, and we have no option but to pay whatever rates they want.
I use supplements and herbal medicine to treat all sorts including high blood pressure. I don't want to take Big Pharma's medicines because they don't always work and sometimes make you worse. Look at cancer. Using radiology etc to treat cancer does nothing but set you on a course of planned death. Best way to fight cancer would be supplements etc such as Vitamin B-17, Vitamin D, Calcium. Vitamin B-17 is the best if the cancer is caught early.
I'm going to stock up on my supplements and research more on herbal medicine. If Big Ass Pharma wants to make it illegal? Well then I'm a f**kin criminal!!!!!
