Health benefits from wood

Forest products that can change peoples lives

Besides safeguarding people's well-being by providing nappies, sanitary pads and toilet paper, the forest can contribute to global health in more advanced ways. How about 3D-printed human-like tissue for medical research? Or cellulose filters that fight the tiniest and most aggressive of bacteria in contaminated drinking water? The forest might not have all the solutions but it does have a growing number of important innovations to bring to the table.
