"Initially they call it absurd. Then the call it obvious." The article seeks to show a missing concilience between modern Western medicine and "plant medicine." The article says that of the 5,000 prescription drugs approved by the FDA since the 1960's, "fewer than a dozen are based on plants or the chemical formulas derived from substances found in plants." The author blames the complexity of plants (and plant genomes) for science overlooking them. "If we are to embrace the complexity of plants while maintaining the precision and the virtues of modern science, we need a new conceptual framework and a new approach."
