Animals’ instincts help humans.
It is well known that sick animals treat themselves. Many species can not only treat themselves and their offspring but also take preventive measures in order not to get sick. Moreover, some animals can choose such food for their offspring, which minimizes the development of diseases in the next generation. Of course, only the instinct teaches them how to get rid of illnesses using, for example, medicinal plants. But people studying the phenomenon of animals’ “self-medication” can find medicinal plants to create new drugs that will contribute to recovery and the person.
