Several thousands of such compounds have been identified and characterized from many plant genera as their major constituents. In large doses, some of them are used as phyto-pharmaceuticals and differ from other drugs only in terms of their origin as plant-derived. Drugs of plant origin or those based on modification of plant-derived molecules include aspirin (willow’s bark), digoxin (fox glove), reserpine (Rauvolfia), quinine/quinidine, and vincristine (African periwinkle). Some of them, such as strychnine, albrin, and strophantidine, are quite toxic and should be handled with care.

Consumption of beef, pork, and turkey has been linked to many inflammatory diseases. 14 The China–Oxford–Cornell Study on Dietary, Lifestyle and Disease Mortality Characteristics, conducted in 65 rural counties in China, was a comprehensive examination of dietary and lifestyle factors associated with disease mortality. The study compared the health consequences of diets rich in animalbased foods to diets rich in plant-based foods among people who were genetically similar. The study included a comparison of the prevalence of Western diseases (coronary heart disease, diabetes, leukemia, and cancers of the colon, lung, breast, brain, stomach, and liver) in each county, using 1973–1975 death rates.
