    lol @ "over 150 active substances" Sure, so...? And of those that "worked" where are the citations of those(I'm sure very well done) trials? People with RA take steroids because not only should neem not be ingested, but it just doesn't work for such a serious condition well, if at all. Where is this proof of inhibiting prostiglandins, and what molecular compound are they claiming is doing this? Also how? These are awfully suspicious claims. Maybe not every extraction that has come from neem is snake oil, but please don't start rubbing it into your skin or drinking it, it also has toxic compounds that may have worse side effects than other treatments.

    I guess that you have to ask yourself why it's not being used extensively in the medical profession, if it is so good. This brings to mind grapefruit seed extract.

    So, is it safe to say that neem oil promotes "wellness" or "goodness?"

    Our FDA is incredibly careful about approving medicines, which can be good and bad.

    Grapefruit is a good case in point in terms of supporting the efforts of the byzantine FDA. While it is my favorite juice and harmless to me, it can also hinder the effectiveness of some heart medications and is even contraindicated on some pharmaceutical labels.

    There was some herbal concoction popularized in whackadoodle California (go figure) some years back promoting "wellness," "chi realignment," or whatever, which turned out to be an "abortive remedy."

    Imagine the surprise . . .
