Summary Surveying the vast biodiversity of the medicinal plant world, this program examines the challenges facing countries rich in such natural resources. Presents interviews with numerous alternative health experts, documenting their knowledge in a wide range of herbal and plant-based treatments. It also studies controversies surrounding the patenting of organisms with medicinal potential, such a Peru's maca root -- a clear demonstration that the interests of powerful pharmaceutical companies don't always suit those of indigenous peoples.
