    They bring joy, healing, and peace on earth. You got to discover the miracle of plants. Without plants there is no life. We need to go back to the drawing board, and make it a mandate in the SDGs, that Plant science be taught well in school and in all level of the social fabric. make it mission. Educate people about plants as if your life depends on it! How come that the plants be disregarded as if animals could survive without them? who started this nonsense that plants be taken for granted. We need to demand that the NSF allocates grants for teaching the plant science. They use plants to do all the research but they do not give credit ( Plants have no rights, but animals do!). Really?
