Panacea vs. Cancer?

Usually when we are in countryside we face a lot of herb that we never imagine that some of them are used as panacea .In one side of country some herb are used which in the other part are not used. This difference becomes more significant when we look at different countries. For example soy and soy components were first used as food in Asian countries and then expanded to Europe and America. However there existed soy cultivation in the United States from long time ago, but it was used as an animal food.

Use of herb as for soothing purposes has a very interesting history. For instance Avicenna, the great Persian herb scientist living in 11th century AD, was one of the first persons in the world to use herb as panacea. In the ancient India, we can also see the same application.

Living in the 21th century, after 1000 years, instead of using the natural fruit, vegetables, and panacea herb, we are unfortunately using more and more chemical food. Just in the last 20 years, the effects of using the chemical foods has caused Americans to suffer from obesity, heart problems, different types of cancers, and so forth. The more the drug companies increased their income, the closer the former healthy people become to disease and gradual death.
