And while we're talking about alternative solutions, our last word in business today is His Royal Homeopath. Prince Charles of England is launching a line of herbal remedies next year. It's going to be part of his organic food company. Now, this may sound a little radical for a royal, but according to one survey, one in five Britons uses some form of alternative therapy. And the National Health Service funds treatments such as acupuncture and hypnotherapy. It's big business in Britain, as in the United States. And that's the business news on Morning Edition from NPR News. I'm Steve Inskeep.
