There is a limit on what can be synthesized, and in some cases,
the synthesized product is not effective in the same way as the
original product or may cause unacceptable side effects.

I recall reading in book about research done on an ancient South
American inner tree bark that was supposed to cure cancer.  The
active ingredient was identified and then synthesized and used
in a study.  The patient's on the 'real' pills suffered such
horrible side effects (not described) that the study was
immediately stopped and the old remedy was labelled toxic.  In
another book, the raw product, in its natural state, prepared
the old way, was used on some cancer patients who were in
hospital dying.  Only about nine of them I believe.  At least
five recovered and went home.  There were no negative side
effects.

Our beloved medical scientists have yet to synthesize blood.
Supposedly we have the technology and have had it for a very
long time - so why don't we have synthesized blood and still
have to collect it from real human donors along with all the
associated risks of various horrible diseases?

]Now, someone may have a better memory than I, but wasn't a cure
for some cancers or a treatment, discovered in a Yew tree that
grows on the Pacific north coast?  It was a few years ago.  Last
I heard, synthesization had not been successful, only the raw
real product would work, so while there had been great hope, it
was realized that there just isn't enough of the trees to go
around.

Synthesizing just isn't a miracle answer - yet.  So if we can't
do it here with a constant and consistent success rate, why do
we think everyone else in the universe can?  We haven't unlocked
all the mysteries of our own human biology much less that of our
environment, so why should we believe every other 'alien' race
can?

Does that maybe shed some light on an answer to your question?
