Botanists Identify 28,000 Medicinal Plants That Treat Ailments from Cancer to Diabetes

Written by (ANTIMEDIA)
In recent years, the term “plant medicine” has come to be associated with psychedelics like mushrooms and ayahuasca, which are increasingly documented to provide mental and emotional relief to users. But according to a recent analysis from Kew Gardens in the United Kingdom, there are over 28,000 other plants currently being used as medicine throughout the world.

The second annual report from Britain’s Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew, located in London, is the result of the research and analysis of 128 scientists from 12 countries around across the globe.

We’re revolutionizing the news industry, but we need your help! Click here to get started.

According to their findings, there are 28,187 plants “currently recorded as being of medicinal use.

The report [pdf] explains:

In many regions of the world, people still rely on traditional plant-based medicines for their primary healthcare. This is especially true for many rural communities in Africa, parts of Asia, and Central and South America, where plants and knowledge of their traditional use are accessible and affordable. In other countries, many of these traditional plant-based medicines are being integrated through regulations into mainstream health systems.”

Though plant medicines are making their way into the mainstream, the researchers note that currently, just “16% (4,478) of the species used in plant-based medicines are cited in a medicinal regulatory publication.” Even so, they note data on drugs approved by the FDA and similar agencies:

Since 1981, 1,130 new therapeutic agents have been approved for use as pharmaceutical drugs, of which 593 are based on compounds from natural sources. Thirty-eight are derived from medicinal plants. Fifteen of the 56 natural drugs registered for the treatment of cancer since 1980 are derived from medicinal plants with a long history of traditional use.”

They note, for example, that “The anti-cancerous drugs vincristine and vinblastine are derived from the Madagascar periwinkle, Catharanthus roseus in the Apocynaceae family.”

Additionally:

For example drugs based on Paclitaxel have been isolated from the yew tree (Taxus spp.), Camptothecin from the happy tree, (Camptotheca acuminata) and Podophyllotoxin from the May apple (Podophyllum hexandrum and P. peltatum).”

Further, researchers have discovered over 1,000 species of beneficial plants since their survey last year. As Yahoo News summarized, “new plants discovered over the past year include nine species of a climbing vine used in the treatment of Parkinson’s disease.

The report said two plants, artemisinin and quinine, are ‘among the most important weapons’ against malaria, which killed over 400,000 people in 2015,” Yahoo summarized.

According to Monique Simmonds, deputy director of science at Kew, “The report is highlighting the huge potential that there is for plants, in areas like diabetes and malaria,” Yahoo reported. “One study documents 656 flowering plant species used traditionally for diabetes, representing 437 genera and 111 families,” the report explains.

It also points out that of “only five drugs developed specifically for the symptomatic treatment of Alzheimer’s disease, two are derived from plants.”

Some particularly powerful species of plants include Fabaceae (pea and bean), Lamiaceae (mint), Euphorbiaceae (spurge), Apocynaceae (dogbane), Malvaceae (mallow), Apiaceae (parsley or carrot), and Ranunculaceae (buttercup). Their key classes of compounds are alkaloids (Fabaceae), terpenes (Lamiaceae),  diterpenoids (Euphorbiaceae), cardiac-glycosides (Apocynaceae), organic acids (Malvaceae), coumarins (Apiaceae), and alkaloids (Ranunculaceae). Another highly useful plant documented in the report is Moraceae, which is used in the treatment of diabetes.

Though their report offers great promise, they highlight some pitfalls. Stressing that correct labeling of plant medicines is vital, they explain:

Product labeling is frequently misleading, with the trade name ‘ginseng’, for example, referring to 15 different species of plant, each with its own particular chemistry and therapeutic properties[10]. Substitution by a Belgian clinic of one Chinese medicinal herb (‘Fang Ji’) with another sharing the same name, led to over 100 patients requiring kidney dialysis for the remainder of their lives.”

They also point out the threat to the plants themselves.

Increasing demand for herbal medicines (particularly for species covered by pharmacopoeias) threatens wild populations of many of these plants,” they note, adding that “ the focus of world trade on relatively few species of medicinal plants leads to sustainability and conservation issues, which ultimately lead to other plants being substituted, with potential risks to human health.”

They advocate more precise scientific labeling of plants and more “clarity on which plants have or have not been studied in drug discovery programmes.”

Such approaches,” they contend, “will be hugely important in improving our ability to realise current and future medicinal benefits from plants.”

As pharmaceutical drugs continue to wreak hazardous consequences, the healing power of natural plants appears to hold great promise for humans seeking treatment without the chemical side effects of current popular medicines.

Brexit Is Germany Dictating to Britain How We Will Trade With The World After-Brexit?

“German government officials have proposed giving Britain access to the European Union’s single market in return for a fee, …

The 35-page report on the potential costs of Brexit to Germany said Britain’s departure from the EU risked “serious economic and stability relevant consequences; effects in particular on the real economy.” The ministry officials calculated Berlin would have to pay an additional 4.5 billion euros ($5 billion) a year into EU coffers as a result of Britain’s departure from the bloc. To mitigate the cost, they floated the idea of charging Britain for access to the single market.

“Such a future financial contribution should be used to alleviate the financial consequences of Brexit (reduction in EU spending or increase in payments for other member states),” Focus quoted the officials as saying. … (Reuters, May 6, 2017)

Germany offering Britain post-BREXIT access to the European market for an annual “fee”! Who do these sausage scoffers think they are? The German government might like to pretend otherwise but there are twenty six other EU member states involved in negotiating any post – Brexit trade agreement with the UK, and Germany is not overly popular with many of them. This posturing probably has more to do with the fact that once britain is out, the burden of propping up the EU’s basket case economies will fall solely on Germany, and German taxpayers are not happy at the idea of their taxes rising to benefit Portuguese vinyards or Cypriot olive Oil producers. Thet feel that too much of their money already goes into the wasteful kitty of the bloated and incompetent Brussels bureaucracy.

The chances are BREXIT will be followed by many others, Quitaly is on the cards after the next round of elections FREXIT, France leaving the European disnion has huge public support. NEXIT, the departure of The Netherlands has also been mooted. It would be the end of the EU and a blessing for Europe if any of these happen. Eighty percent of the French want a referendum on France leaving the European Union.

EU officials believe the election of Macron has secured the Union, but even if the man who came fom nowhere manages to cobble together a legislative majority it will only be with the support of the conservatives who, after haemorrhaging support to Marine Le Pen’s Front National are now taking a more Eurosceptic line. Macron is likely to be a lame duck president at the mercy of his political opponents.

But Marcon’s candidacy was an establishment ploy to retain power anyway. How many French, or Europeans for that matter, know the former Investment Banker owes his rapid political ascent to the patronage of the Rothschild banksters he worked for and their socialist cronies (its a strange thing but in France, as in Britain and the USA, that left wing politicians are attracted to Rothschilds like flies are attracted to shit,) then he was catapulted by Hollande and PM Valls into the position of French Minister of Finance while still a rookie assembly member, basically to deregulate everything in the economy that had not previously been deregulated, as well as pushing through the infamous anti-union French Labor law. He is a neoliberal globalist, defending a new-fascist economy. That is not what the media portray, and surely not what people voted for.

Many disenchanted French voters both before and since the election have complained the final vote, Macron or Le Pen, was a choice between the Plague and Cholera.

but who do you think has financed the massive propaganda that brought Macron to prominence from an almost unknown past? – The banksters and their interest groups, of course. Globalization must not die. The world hasn’t been sucked entirely dry yet. If France were to exit ‘the project,’ like we Brits decided almost a year ago, the globalization empire might crumble – with neo-fascism at peril.

But back to Britain: The UK does not need the EU. In fact, London has already had preliminary talks with China, India, Nigeria and Brazil for bilateral trade agreements. If they materialize and others follow, they will most likely encompass British commonwealth nations, the entire Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), which comprises also Russia, most of Central Asia, Pakistan, Iran and India which is in the process of joining. And Donald Trump’s US administration is amenable toa bilateral deal with Britain.

If such agreements were to materialize, Britain’s market would be linked to two thirds of the world’s population and about a half of the globe’s economic output. There would be no need for the decaying European Union and her faltering western allies. Let’s be clear: The future is in the East. The West is passé.

We must hope Teresa May and her Brexit team will not fall for Germany’s generous offer of access to the EU market. Germany needs Britain more than briain needs the EU.

EU Euronazis Raise Demand For Brexit ‘Compo’ To €100 Billion.

Tensions between the UK and Europe escalated overnight after EU negotiators increased their demand for compensation from Britain’s for the anticipated effects of Brexit to €100 billion, (You can imagine Juncker and Barnier, dressed in Mao suits, sticking little fingers in the corner of their mouth and in silly voices intoning “One – hundred – billion – Euros.) This latest attempt to bully Britain has only served to widen the divide between Brussels and London. Angered by the stupidity and arrogance of the Brussels bureaucrats, British negotiators questioned whether the country should agree to pay anything at all.

Coming before Brexit talks start next month and only hours before chief negotiator Michel Barnier was due to give more details on the EU’s standpoint,drawing an immediate rejection from Britain’s Brexit Secretary David Davis of the notion that Britain must pay to leave the corrupt, failing European Union. The Financial Times reported the EU was planning to ask for an upfront payment in 2019 of up to €100 billion before a Brexit deal could be agreed. Barnier hinted that the demand could be enforced through the European Court of Justice.

The European Commission had initially mentioned a severance fee of about €60 billion but the FT said the calculations it referred to would result in a net payment from Britain of roughly that level, after subsequent reimbursements. One senior EU official involved in preparing for the talks after a British election on June 8 said he did not recognize the 100-billion-euro figure, although a number of private calculations of the bill have gone as high or even higher.

Last month, the Bruegel think-tank in Brussels put the up-front payment for Britain as high as €109 billion. Later reimbursement would reduce the net figure to €65 billion, the study showed.

Shortly after the FT story broke, UK government Brexit Secretary Davis said Britain will not be paying a €100BN Brexit bill, and would have no obligation to pay any Brexit bill if it leaves the EU without a deal. Davis told BBC Radio 4’s “Today” program, “nobody is looking for that outcome, [ … ] the simple truth is that when we leave we’ll go outside the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice.”

He then summarized the overnight media reports by saying “what you’re seeing is the tough early stages of the negotiation.”

Meanwhile, over the past month, the 27 other EU member states have drafted negotiating guidelines for the executive Commission that leaders agreed on Saturday. In the course of drafting, governments insisted on clarifying that Britain be made to pay up front for, among other things, contingent liabilities for guarantees on loans made by, for example, the European Investment Bank.

To summarise, what this belligerent, bullying attitude from EU officials means is that without Britain’s financial contribution the EU is effectively insolvent, and once taxpayers in Germany get wind that the burden of propping up twenty six economic basket cases will fall entirely on them, they might just rebel and elect an anti EU government later this year.

As Bloomberg notes, reports added to the already fractious public atmosphere surrounding the talks folloed leaked details of a dinner meeting between May and European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, which alleged the latter was shocked by the Prime Minister’s resolute approach and refusal to defer to the European Commission’s Piss-artist-in-chief, Monsieur Drunkard.

May vowed on Tuesday she wouldn’t be pushed about, saying that Juncker is learning she can be “bloody difficult.” While that may not bode well for the coming negotiations, it is likely to boost May’s support as she seeks a mandate in June’s General Election to get us out and then dictate terms to the EU, as Italy, France, The Netherlands and several smaller member states are dissastisfied with the wastful, incompetend bureaucracy in Brussels and its obsession with political integration.

The neo – Nazi mindset of EU negotioators revealed over recent days confirms the EU’s leadership default position is to punish member states that do not conform. There seems to be a belief, emanating from Germany and its close allies that Britons can be cowed into apologising for their temerity at even daring to think we could leave Europe. The goal is obviously to bring us back crawling to Brussels in supplication for re-admittance?

In response to that we should send back a simple message, “Two World Wars and one World Cup.

How Much Trouble The UK Electricity Grid Is In

from The Energy Advocate
A report published by the Green Alliance has raised serious concerns about the stability of the UK energy network.

The report advocates an intervention to avert an impending ‘disaster’ which will entail ‘rising bills, blackout risk and angry consumers’.

The report also specifically highlights the threat to energy security represented by electric car charging.

‘As few as six closely located vehicles charging together at peak time could lead to local brownouts,’ the report warns.

The report predicts the situation will worsen by 2023 when extensive charging of electric vehicles could cause ‘brownouts’ at evening peak times in the UK. This would cause the voltage to drop and prevent some household appliances from working.

According to Dustin Benton, the policy director of Green Alliance, the problem is increased by the fact that initial ownership of electric cars will probably lead to a high concentration in wealthy areas. This will exacerbate the risk of localised shortages.

UK Police Arresting Terrorist suspects Almost Every Day – Estimate 10,000 Jihadis At Large In Britain

The Senior National Co-ordinator for Counter Terrorism has revealed that British police are making terror-related arrests “on a near daily basis”. Meanwhile, a study estimates the number of “committed Islamists” in the country is “between 6,000 and 10,000”.

Deputy Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu of the Metropolituan Police revealed the scale of the struggle police and security services face to contain terrorism by home grown extremists in a statement to reporters outside New Scotland Yard on Friday.

“I wanted to reassure the public that our increased activity to combat terrorism over the last two years continues,” he said. The statement was made at the end of an “extraordinary day” in which police stopped arrested a migrant walking towards the Houses of Parliament with a rucksack filled with knives on his shoulder. In a separate incident armed officers shot a woman in a niqab in an operation to foil an “active plot” in the London suburb of Willesden.

“Activity continues around the clock to identify and stop these threats,” Basu told the press corps, before admitting that “we are making arrests on a near daily basis”.

Mr. Basu paid tribute “to the bravery of my uniform and detective colleagues”, having previously mentioned to the “horrors in London” on 22 March, when a british born Muslim extremist in an SUV mowed down several people on the crowded walkway of Westminster Bridge, killing several people and injuring many, before stabbing Police Constable Keith Palmer to death.

“There are constant acts of immense bravery by officers, those that the public see when our officers run towards danger, just like yesterday, but a huge amount of unseen work that the public will never know about from us and our brilliant security services.” Basu said.

Meanwhile, the director of the Centre for Security and Intelligence Studies at the University of Buckingham, Anthony Glees, has estimated there may be “between 6,000 and 10,000” extremists in Britain.

Those anti Semites of the The National Union of Students (NUS) are at it again. Apparently the same kind of loonytoons thinking that informs the politically correct left that it’s culturally enriching for a white woman to be raped by a middle eastern or African immigrant, that its fine for Muslims to beat their wives (who are just pieces of property anyway, and that while its fine for Muslim women to run around with a ten over their heads, Christian women may not have a crucifix visible about their person because ‘Muslims might find it offensive,’ seem to have been embroiled in controversies over anti Semitism for most of the past couple of years.

Hypocrisy and double standards are the stock in trade of the ‘new left’ of course and the anti – Semitism of Labour voters and other younger lefties (University dumbed down airheads who are too historically illiterate to be aware of the role Britain’s Jewish communities played in establishing the Labour Party)who are involved in a fresh anti-Semitism row after three candidates either running for or seeking re-election to executive positions in the Union were exposed as having made offensive comments.

The problem stems from the binary nature of the left wing mindset. As we have all seen, to these millennials any suggestion that there should be controls on immigration amount to racism, criticism of a homosexual, no matter how appalling their behaviour, is homophobic, and pointing out that there are biological differences between men and women is sexist.

It is not hard then to understand how easily these people convince themselves that every single follower of the Jewish religion, or even secular Jews who are ‘of the blood’ but not religious, is personally responsible for the way Palestinians have been treated in Israel.

Not only are the millennials of the NUS apparently ignorant of the long tradition of support for socialism among British Jews, they are also unaware that prior to the creation of the state of Israel after World War Two, the Muslims of The Ottoman Empire had been treating Palestinian Jews like vermin for a thousand years. The hatreds that fuel inter racial and inter – tribal conflicts in that part of the world are acient and far too complex for meddling westerners to understand. but that does not deter the wannabe leaders of the national Union of Students. And went that binary mindset analyses the problem those complexities are reduced to the level of guys in white hats and guys in black hats.

In online posts one current member of the union’s National Executive Council shared a video mocking Jews as having big noses and being tight with money, while another publicly suggested Jewish people are tight-fisted and said he wanted to destroy Israel. And these are the people who got their knickers in a twist about the Romanian former tennis champion Ilie Nastase saying something in mildly poor taste about the mixed race child Serena Williams and he white boyfriend will welcome into the world during the summer.

A third, seeking election to the union’s national executive in elections being held this week, wrote an offensive Twitter message referring to Jews and using the phrase “Heil Hitler”.

It gets worse. During her time as a student at the University of Birmingham, Malia Bouattia, the current NUS president, was involved in hosting a play called “Seven Jewish Children” that has been denounced by both Jews and non Jews as anti-Semitic.

Ms Bouattia, who is seeking re-election, was accused last year of “outright racism” by the House of Commons Home Affairs Select Committee over comments she made about Israel. She had claimed the University of Birmingham (UK) was a “Zionist outpost” and criticised “Zionist-led media outlets”.

The revelations come amid accusations of rampant anti-Semitism on university campuses, whipped up by Muslim extremists according to some British students with no religious affiliation. A survey by the NUS last month found a quarter of Jewish students in the UK live in fear of an anti-Semitic hate crime, while two thirds who had been the victim of hate crime said they were targeted because of their faith.

The NUS annual conference, where national officers for the coming year will be elected, begins in Brighton on Tuesday. Despite the deepening worries about anti-Semitism, a number of candidates seeking office and expected to win because of their left wing, politically correct platforms, have a history of making anti-Jewish and anti-Israeli comments.

Threat Of Major Scandal Prompted Early Election Move – UKIP

Leaders of the United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP) have made astonishing claim that Prime Minister Teresa May’s move to call an early General Election in June this year was done to pre-empt a series of by-elections that could be called following a police investigation into alleged electoral fraud. Accusing May and the Conservative government she leads of “putting party before country”, UKIP front man Paul Nuttall appeared to suggest an electoral fraud scandal and the ensuing disqualification of sitting members of The House of Commons could rob the government of its slender majority in parliament.

600x600
Oops, sorry: that’s Teresa May the porn star, not the one who is a politician.

Mrs. May strongly denied she would call a snap election after being chosen, unopposed, as the Conservative leader following the resignation of David Cameron after he was humiliated when the country voted to leave the EU (Brexit). After parliament approved the invocation of the Article 50 Bill with a massive majority, with many of the unelected members of the House of Lords, along with a large section of Labour MPs, the Scottish Nationalists and Liberal Democrats along with a rebel faction in her own party promising they would prevent Brexit going ahead (in defiance of the democratic will,) The Prime minister today claimed she had “reluctantly” changed her mind.

Her U-turn also comes exactly a month after reports suggested Conservative Party figures were fearful of a series of by-elections that could be called after up to 20 of their MPs were alleged to have broken electoral law in the 2015 campaign, mostly in seats UKIP had a good chance of winning.

More than ten police forces have referred cases to the Crown Prosecution Service and lawyers are now considering whether to charge the MPs or their agents after a year long investigation.

“…The prospect of a slew of Tory-held by-elections caused by the seeming systematic breach of electoral law at the last election, predominantly in places where UKIP were pressing the Conservatives hard” could have influenced the decision to hold an election now, suggested Nuttall in a press statement.

Deputy UKIP leader Peter Whittle also said the decision was “utterly cynical”, adding: “But we’re having [a general election] now and my party is actually quite excited about it.” Speaking on the BBC’s Daily Politics, he said there was “no question” the Tories were acting out of self-interest.
