Herbal Remedies of the Deep Tropics
We've all heard of the fantastic variety of life forms in the tropical forest. It is the cradle of all terrestrial life on Earth. And, as is to be expected, this almost infinite variety is a potential source of an almost infinite variety of herbal remedies. The sustainable community in the tropics that does not take advantage of what is known in this field is putting its people in danger.
Also sustainable communities in the temperate zones, besides taking full advantage of their own native remedies, should cooperate with communities in the tropics to exchange herbal remedies. Little energy is used in transporting a couple of kilos of dried leaves!
