The Evolution Of Medication…

Life on earth is a gift of God; there is no argument about this fact. Man has been given life and then given adequate health to enjoy this. Without health, life seems to have no meaning at all. This is the reason why man has always been conscious about devising different medicines and techniques to cure diseases since the pre historic time. Over the period of time, there have been many improvements in this area. Man has continues to improve in the area of medications and has made sure that every diseases that catches him should have a cure already devised.
The evolution in medications has been a slow, yet a successful and though provoking process. In the earliest time, man used different herbs and leaves and roots or different plants to cure certain diseases. Later on, man started extracting the chemicals present within those plant parts by dissolving the plant parts in the water and used that extracted water as medicine. With more time passed, man studies what actually was there in those plant parts or extracted water that helped curing the disease. And once those particular chemicals were identified, man then synthesized them manually in laboratories and started commercial production of medicines. Now, all this stuff has been a great success. And today we stand in the 21dt century where man seems to have conquered most of the diseases which once seemed to horrify him. A number of fatal diseases have been very closely studied and effective treatments for those have been proposed in no time. More research on medications is being carried out and it is hoped that in near future, better, improved and cost effective medicines will be brought to light. And if it happens so, life will be easier and safer than it is today!
