And it's often forgotten in the modern world, that many of the medicines we use were originally derived from plant or animal sources. In some cases the plant derived medicine has fewer side-effects than the modern medicine (which is typically the result of extracting the desirable part of the plant and synthesizing it in mass quantities) because other qualities of the plant reduce the impact of the negative qualities of the medicinal part.
