Strange laws: In many jurisdictions, "chinese herbal medicines" can be sold unregulated.

Maybe higher: It's hard to know for sure, because industrialized countries have better registries and are more likely to keep track of brain tumors. There may be a slightly higher rate of brain tumors in the us compared to a non-industrialized country, but the difference is small.
