ABSTRACT
The article looks at science historian Alain Touwaide, focusing on his devotion to collecting historical medical manuscripts and uncovering lost knowledge. The author comments on how Touwaide recruited geneticist Robert Fleischer to extract DNA from 2,000-year-old medicine and identify the plants used. Touwaide has since cross-referenced this information with that found in ancient Greek medical texts.
