Aloe vera

This article was originally published in The Rose Sheet

Executive Summary

National Cancer Institute nominated aloe vera for toxicity testing due to its "widespread or increasing use by the public," NIH's National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences announced. Aloe vera is one of nine substances slated to undergo testing; others, including ginseng, kava kava, milk thistle and indole-3-carbinol, a vegetable substance thought to inhibit cancer, also have been recommended. Such advisements are often made when the "popularity of a relatively untested substance exposes large numbers of people" and current toxicity information is "inadequate," NIEHS noted. The comment deadline is Sept. 7
