3. Medicinal Plants

Most of today's drugs were derived from medicinal plants.  Modern scientific investigations have substantiated many of the early uses of medical plants, and have increasingly found ways to use them in treating modern diseases. Plants have been the basis for medical treatments through much of human history, and such traditional medicine is still widely practiced today.

Today about 80% of the world’s population rely predominantly on plants and plant extracts for healthcare (4). In addition, of the top 150 proprietary drugs used in the United States of America (USA), 57% contain at least one major active compound currently or once derived from plants. According to data released by the World Health Organization (WHO), ethnomedicine has maintained its popularity in all regions of the developing world and its use is rapidly expanding in the industrialized countries.

Up to 50% the approved drugs during the last 30 years are from either directly or indirectly from natural products and in the area of cancer, over the time frame from around the 1940s to date, of the 175 small molecules 85 actually being either natural products.
