Edited by Purusotam Basnet

The Arctic University of Norway, Norway

From the dawn of civilization, humans have been dreaming of happy, healthy and long-life. Our life expectancy is twice longer than 100 years ago. We know more about the diseases.

Although Pharma industries took responsibility of producing the needed drugs and gave us a quality of life, misuse of drugs brought further complication.
