FDA approval of neem
by Erin Moore
Is the Neem Oil FDA approved?
Neem most certainly is not FDA approved and never will be.
To get FDA approved a substance has to be rigorously researched and trialled clinically. This costs money. A lot of money.
Neem can not be patented and that means that pharmaceutical companies can not reap squillions of dollars from investing into neem research.
Big pharma is not interested in helping people, their main objective is to make money. So why should they spend money on researching neem?
A substance that is as effective as neem, that can be used so many different ways, and is so easily and cheaply available even in third world countries, is a huge threat to the pharmaceutical industry. It will never be supported by mainstream pharma, medicine, or the FDA.
