Attributing modern medicine’s popularity to its scientific validation, Union Minister for Health and Family Welfare Anbumani Ramadoss today said the government would spend Rs 120 crore for a similar purpose for Indian medicine to popularise it globally.
“Though Allopathy (modern medicine) has evolved as a successful medicinal system only in the last 150 years, it was mainly due to its scientific validation. The Centre has now initiated efforts to scientifically validate Indian medicine systems like Ayurveda and Siddha,” he said.
He added that yoga was also a billion dollar industry which the whole world is awakening to and the government plans to make it mandatory in schools.
