"Nutrition, Plants and Herbs From The Rain Forest"
One of the Earth's greatest natural resources needs to be preserved.
Many untold treasures and irreplaceable resources available only within these unique environments have yet to be discovered.
The importance of these fragile eco-systems to the health of our world cannot be overstated:
Over half of Earth's living species live there.
Two-and-a-half acres of Amazon Rainforest contain over seven hundred-fifty types of trees, more than all of North America.
One rainforest reserve in Peru is home to more species of birds than the entire United States.
According to estimates, twenty percent of the world's oxygen is produced in the Amazon Rainforest.
Two-thirds of the Earth's fresh water is found in the Amazon River basin.
Perhaps even more distressing is the loss of countless ingredients that could provide improved health and a better life for millions of people throughout the entire world:
Seventy percent of the plants currently found to be active against cancers come from the rainforests.
Over one hundred and twenty prescription drugs and twenty-five percent of all pharmaceuticals originate from rainforest materials.
Eighty percent of all fruits and vegetables in our modern diet originated there.
And yet, the rainforest is so rich with life, less than one percent of it's three hundred thousand plant species have even been studied by scientists.
- One rainforest plant, the Madagascar Periwinkle (now extinct in the wild), has produced a drug that has increased the survival rate in children with leukemia from 20% to 80%. How many lives have been saved by this one plant? How many more can be saved by other plants that grow in the rainforests?
A seemingly endless list of fact after fact present the importance of saving the world's remaining rainforests. If we act today, the world we pass on to our children's children can be a healthier, better world for all.
The key to turning this tide of destruction lies in providing long-term, economically viable alternatives to the current exploitation of the rainforests by timber companies, oil companies, agra-business and others. Sustainable, non-destructive harvesting of the riches contained in the rainforests of the world is vital to the on-going health of our world.
Not only is it environmentally sound, but sustainable harvesting of rainforest plants makes more economic sense than the alternatives. It is estimated that sustainable harvesting of one acre of Peruvian Amazon rainforest can produce over $2400 annually for the Peruvian people. In contrast, clear-cutting for timber nets only $400 per acre and cattle grazing earns only $60 per acre.
A COMPLEX PROBLEM
Like many of the world's problems, rainforest deforestation is a complex problem. yet, in reality, the solution is simple. If you and enough people like you, show concern and start to take positive actions, change will occur. In this case, it is as simple as using, and encouraging others to use, products that have been sustainably harvested from these endangered rainforests of the world.
Indigenous peoples of the rainforest areas earning a livable income from non-destructively harvesting the fruits of the forest are helping to save the Rain forest.
WILL IT WORK?
Yes. The only way to save the world's rainforests is to provide an alternative that offers the local people and local governments an economic solution that is better than the current destructive exploitation.
THE PHARMACY OF THE WORLD
To the people who have lived in the rainforest for thousands of years, it is a sacred place. A place of life. A place of health. Through countless generations, these indigenous peoples of the rainforest have learned many of the health secrets hidden within the dense vegetation, utilizing over eighteen-hundred species of plants for medicinal and health purposes.
