local.seafdecaqd.extractA non-government organization (NGO), Reef Check, revealed that there are 10 new drugs that come from animals in the ocean that are used to treat diseases, particularly leukemia and HIV/AIDS. The founder of Reef Check, Dr. Gregor Hodjson, said that coral reefs are not just beneficial for food security but also useful for drugs formulations.“The original chemical that is being tested came from (coral reef) sponges. The most powerful drugs against leukemia, blood cancer are from the reefs. If we are losing our reefs, we are killing potential drugs that could save our lives,” said Hodjson.en
