Why is medicine important to the rainforest?
About 7,000 medicine compounds are from plants in the rainforest. 70% of 3000 plants have been identified by the United States National Cancer Institute as having potential anti-cancer properties are in the rainforest. Madagascar's rosy periwinkle provides two important anti-tumor agents. One provides a 99% chance of remission in cases of leukemia. The second anti-tumor agent provides a 58% of remission to the Hodgkin's Disease sufferers. In 1960, 19% had a chance to survive.
