|have publicly condemned the practice of extracting bear bile for being cruel, and called for China's securities regulator to closely scrutinize the company's business.
"The way that bile extracted will not only cause the bears excruciating pain, but also exposes bears' organs to open air and can lead to serious health risks, like illness and infection," Zhang Xiaohai, secretary-general of the Ta Foundation, told the Global Times Heren Nike Air Max 97 OG GS Schoenen Zilver Wit Rood Kopen , noting that the process is both physically and psychologically harmful to bears.
"The day [when Guizhentang halted listing] came earlier than we expected," the TA Foundation said at its microblog.
The organization also questioned whether the healthcare products sold by Guizhentang contain bear bile, which violates a Ministry of Health regulation issued in 2011, according to a statement that the Ta Foundation sent to Global Times on Tuesday.
Guizhentang refused to discuss the matter when contacted by the Global Times on Monday. Its website was down for maintenance since Monday.
According to media reports, the company emphasized that it employed a bile-harvesting method that doesn't cause any discomfort to the animal.
The company also said that the bears living under its care enjoy satisfying living conditions in environment similar to the wilderness.
The drug maker also blamed that some of animal welfare organizations spread photos taken 20 years ago of bear bile extractions in order to tar the company's reputation.
According to the data released by Guizhentang, the company's net assets tripled over the last three years, jumping from 334 million yuan ($52 million) in 2013 to 1 billion yuan in 2015. The company now rears 899 bears Heren Nike Air Max 97 Ultra Zwart Wit Schoenen Kopen , up from 400 in 2013.
The company manufactures more than 30 products, of which the only two drugs made from bear bile - "bear bile powder" and "bear bile capsules" are the "top sellers," a Guizhentang employee told the Global Times on Monday.
Guizhentang is not the only player in the business of producing bear bile.
In China, there are currently 68 farms where bile is extracted from 20,000 bears, according to a report published on Monday by the State Council, China's cabinet.
The reason why Guizhentang and other such producers have been so successful is that bear bile is a valuable ingredient in TCM Air Max 97 Ultra Zwart Heren Nike Kopen , according to Chinese medicine practitioners.
Huang Junshan, a professor at the Fujian-based Academy of Traditional Chinese Medicine, said that the use of bear bile in Chinese medicine dates back to the Tang Dynasty (618-907). The substance is used in the treatment of gallstones and fever, as well as liver and heart disease.
Bear bile powder has also been used as an agent in "Chinese patent medicine," such as PienTze Huang, a therapeutic drug for liver diseases, and the well-known traditional Chinese medicine AngongNiuhuang Bolus Air Max 97 Wit Heren Nike Schoenen Kopen , which Huang said is effective for febrile diseases.
"Without bear bile, patients will not get the full.
