London Region of U3As - WINTER 'ZOOM' TALKS

I Can’t Believe We Still get Medicines from Plants with Tony Dayan
A surprisingly large number of everyday, important prescription drugs are still extracted from plants. The medicines discussed and the curious histories behind them range from the familiar Foxglove to the Opium Wars of the 1860s, a near fatal arrow wound in the Gold Coast, and a treatment for mild dementia based on a Bulgarian peasant headache remedy. The successes and failures should leave you in awe of your gardens!

Date: Monday 22nd March
Time: 17:00 - 18:00 (login from 16:30)

To register for this talk, see the attached document LRU3A WINTER TALKS
