Castor Oil: A Valuable Medicine Ruined By Big Pharma?

“some sharp operators decided back in the 1960’s that the ancient method of cold pressing the oil was not very profitable and they proposed to remove castor oil in a tenth the time at a tenth the expense, by heating it and using a solvent called Hexane to dissolve it into “oil” much quicker than our ancestors had done it for thousands and thousands of years. In doing so of course they totally destroyed all medicinal value of the plant, leaving basically a Hexane contaminated oil in it’s place that you would be unwise to even use in a lawnmower.

Not long after they stopped producing real castor oil that had been a staple in medicine for at least nine thousand years, doctors began pointing out all the benefits of castor oil had clearly been exaggerated for many centuries.”
