Humans have been using and developing medicines since we have been human. Early medicines were randomly selected and tried empirically after watching animals eat certain plants. Most medicines were mildly toxic and had a bad taste. Over time humans cultivated these plants and experimented with extraction methods to isolate the active components. The first extraction methodology was boiling in water and this act alone set us apart from how animals would instinctively seek out medicinal plants. These practices, extraction, and cultivation began the science of medicine. Today, there are hundreds of active components isolated from plants as well as animals, together with thousands and thousands of research articles supporting their use. This book focuses on oncology and how there are many, many complementary approaches to cancer care.
