      Hi dottyme,
      I think the rainforest was put here for a reason. People say it is the lungs of the world because of all the oxygen it gives off…..but I think this is why all the medicine is.

      Our medicine started off being made from plants, then because of technology we can create our own. Butt every now and again we found these amazing plants that can heal – so aloe vera is a plant that can stop wounds becoming infected.

      But we are cutting down these forests before we can explore each plant.
      So I think…yes there is a plant in the world that could cure cancer (if we used it right), but I don’t think we will find it because we are destroying the forests too quickly 🙁

      I am going to the rainforest soon, so maybe I can find it 😀
