Degradation of the Brazilian Rainforest

The Amazon rainforest covers over 1 billion acres and stretches between Brazil, Venezuela and Colombia, as well as the Eastern Andean region of Ecuador and Peru.
On top of that, it is estimated that 90% of the plants in the rainforest have not been studied by modern science, which means the cure to diseases like cancer or Aids could be growing there and we don’t even know it.
