In this episode, Tony Booker explains how his PhD research took him from turmeric farms in India and China to the aisles of his local Morrisons supermarket 

We learn about the benefits and properties of Turmeric, Curare, Reserpine, Artemisia and  Ethnobotany. 

We also discuss biopiracy, Ethnopharmacology and the steps taken to protect the intellectual property of indigenous tribes and the effects this has on pharmaceutical companies. Mike shares his experience with taking plant-based malaria treatment and Julian asks an important question about plant-based liver care and natural hangover cures.
