    The really sad thing is, so many more medications could be developed, and we’ll never know due to the destruction of this amazing place.

    Like ginaguillotine mentioned, the destruction of the rainforest is hindering our ability to test all of the different plants for medical purposes. However, there are still quite a few plants that are used in society today from the rainforest. One in particular is Valerian, which is basically a popular sleep aid. Another one is Saw Palmetto, which is used by individuals with urinary problems.
