Nigeria’s breakthrough in herbal research adopted by D-8 countries - Amodu
A renowned herbal researcher, Pharm. Ben Amodu, has said a presentation on the efficacies of herbal medicine by Nigerians was accepted and adopted at a meeting of 8 Developing Countries, D-8, in Abuja.
Amodu made this known in Abuja while speaking on the future of herbal research and noted that, "the height of this research was when I was invited to participate at a D-8, meeting where Pakistan, Bangladesh, Turkey amongst other countries which were represented at the event in Abuja, to discuss areas of industrial cooperation.
"In the group which I belonged to, which is health, we presented Nigeria's position on latest discoveries in herbal medicine, which surpasses any other kind of discovery anywhere in the world, that position was accepted and adopted by the D-8 countries."
According to him, "Turkey's position on chemical industries was also adopted, but you know people the world over are running from chemicals industries because most of the drugs are made of chemicals. Whereas the new area of global focus now is on nutritional cures.
“With these products you do not need to inject the patience, let alone operating, just go by way of taking the combination of our products, and issues like prostrate, kidney stone amongst others would melt away.”
He appeal to the media to work closely with herbal researchers in the country in order to create the much needed awareness on non-harmful alternative medicine.
