In many countries, people are still turning to nature to obtain treatments for various ailments.

EA key role within medicine

Medicinal plants have formed the basis of the medications prepared by pharmacists at doctor's request, and plants continue to play a key role in the pharmaceutical industry today. Some plants still retain their medical importance, such as the opium poppy (Papaver somniferum), from which morphine is isolated and used to ease pain in health care. The dried leaves of the Purple Foxglove (Digitalis purpurea) are traditionally used in cardiovascular medicine.
