For thousands of years, people have experimented with plants as a way to cure sickness, conquer infection, and increase longevity. Now, medical researchers are tapping into this vast treasure trove of folk knowledge in their quest for modern drugs to fight cancer and other menacing diseases. Ancient Roots, Modern Medicine is a three–part series that explores this amazing convergence of ancient healing arts with modern medical practices. These documentaries, produced by the award–winning Leading Object Media Group, present fascinating insights into cultures around the globe that still practice ancient ways. The series also tracks intrepid scientists in their exploration for new cures based on ancient medicinal plants. As the research moves forward, both the botanical wealth and traditional wisdom are under attack by human encroachment and environmental impacts of the 21st Century. It is an epic struggle as science races against time.
