    As I’ve found, pot marigold is a medicinal plant since ancient world. It can be used for many diseases and one of it’s effects is anti-oxidizing and therefore it lowers risk of a cancer.

    I’ve realized that this article may look that flowers was real. It was a fake of marigold inflorescence made of a synthetic fabric with a safety-pin. Flowers were nice actually.
