Four common plants, a weed, a flower a root and a fruit. We think we control them …. but what if they really control us? They have learned to satisfy our desires. Look at nature like never before. Can these plants be considered herbal medicine because they fulfill our desires?
The Botany of Desire by Michael Pollan.
I only wonder what the millions of other plants we use everyday from Ginseng to all the other Chinese herbs and plant medicinals would say about these four being selected for the program? How very jealous they must be.
