Some people have to get down and dirty to make a living.

  Ginseng is a highly prized plant that has been used for thousands of years to treat all kinds of illnesses. In its dried form, ginseng is used as a folk medicine, an aphrodisiac, a stimulant, a treatment for type II diabetes, and as a cure for sexual dysfunction in men. Also, small doses of ginseng are added to energy drinks, teas, and coffees to provide an extra kick. Getting this miracle herb, though, is not easy. People have to go deep into the North American forests or Asian jungles to pick the plant's root. This means ginseng diggers have no choice but to get really dirty in order to make money.


  Filthy Riches, the latest series on National Geographic Channel, follows Billy Taylor and his whole family as they make a living by harvesting, buying, and selling ginseng. Taylor and his sons put on their finest camouflage gear and head out to the forests of the Appalachian Mountains to find ginseng. They get on their four-wheelers to go where their pickup trucks cannot go, but there is a big problem. A tree has fallen across the path and none of the four-wheelers can pass. The Taylor family has to get creative to move the tree before they can continue on their way.


  In one particularly exciting scene, Taylor's son is waiting on the side of the road to buy ginseng from diggers passing by. One man approaches, and the situation becomes tense because Taylor's son has never seen the man before. He does not know if the stranger will try to rob him or sell the ginseng. Find out what happens and learn more about dirty ways to make money in Filthy Riches.

 

 


有些人必须无所不用其极以求谋生。

  人参是一种相当珍贵的植物,数千年以来,它一直被用来治疗各种疾病。干燥的人参可以作为民间药方、催情药、兴奋剂以及第二型糖尿病的治疗,还能作为治疗男性性功能障碍的药物。此外,在能量饮料、茶以及咖啡里头加上少量的人参,还能让你更加兴奋。然而,要取得这种神奇的药草可不是那么简单。人们必须要深入北美的森林或亚洲的丛林中,才能采集到这种植物的根。也就是说,挖掘人参的人为了要赚钱,非得无所不用其极不可。


  国家地理频道的最新系列《不可思议赚钱术》,这回跟随着比利‧泰勒和他的整个家族,因为他们就是靠收割及买卖人参来维持生计的。泰勒和他的儿子们穿上他们最精致的迷彩服,出发前往阿帕拉契山脉的森林中寻找人参。他们搭上四轮摩托车前往他们的小卡车无法到达的地方,不过出现了一个大麻烦。有一棵树横倒在路上,且没有任何一辆四轮摩托车能够通过。泰勒一家人必须发挥创意来移开那棵树才能继续上路。


  在一幕格外刺激的场景中,泰勒的儿子正在路边等着向路过的采集者购买人参。有个男子走了过来,由于泰勒的儿子以前从未见过那个男子,所以情况变得紧张起来。他不知道这个陌生人是否会抢劫他,或向他贩售人参。在《不可思议赚钱术》的节目中看看会发生什么事,并了解更多为了赚钱所使用的不当手段吧。
