Scientists have found that this chemical may actually have many health properties. In the long history of herbal medicine, it has been used to teat a number of conditions.

However, the properties that have been discovered drive home an interesting point. Nature does a great job of taking care of itself. Obviously, modern medicine is a blessing to the human race, but there is a lot of evidence that in the complexities of nature, there are safeguards against disease and natural health foods. In a lot of ways, the artifical life we live now cannot be as effective as nature is.
