Amazon Rainforest is the world's greatest
natural resource - the most powerful and
bio-actively diverse natural phenomenon
on the planet. Yet still it is being destroyed
just like other rainforests around the
Amazon Rainforest has long been a symbol
of mystery and power, a sacred link
between humans and nature. It is also
the richest biological incubator on
the planet. It supports millions of
plant, animal and insect species - a
virtual library of chemical invention.
In these archives, drugs like quinine,
muscle relaxants, steroids and cancer
drugs are found. More importantly, are
the new drugs still awaiting discovery
- drugs for AIDS, cancer, diabetes,
arthritis and Alzheimer's. Many secrets
and untold treasures await discovery
with the medicinal plants used by shamans,
healers and the indigenous people of
the Rainforest Tribes. So alluring are
the mysteries of indigenous medical
knowledge that over 100 pharmaceutical
companies and even the US government
are currently funding projects studying
the indigenous plant knowledge and the
specific plants used by native shamans
which accommodate you in the jungle
offer comfort and security for hiking
out to discover the boundless flora
