Natural, Synthetic and Innovative Advances

"Highly Recommended. Each segment of the program is clearly delineated and the content of each is brief and informative. The video and audio quality are clear and well edited, and at 30 minutes long it is ideal for a class showing with time for discussion. Enough information is given so students can easily find more information in the magazine or journal literature using library databases." -EMRO Review

Now researchers are trying to manufacture the agent from other plants; "Xenova" - profiles a small bio-technology company that analyzes plants to look for natural cures of illnesses; "Stomatex" - a comfortable, non-irritating support bandage mimics the way plants breathe; "Battery Blanket" - an innovative blanket, warmed by battery power, is safe, portable and ideal to use in cases of shock or exposure; "Pure Nicotine" - nicotine can now be crystallized; then turned into lozenges to help people quit smoking. 02/08DE IJSCA 30 min.
