I received this information from an email forwarded to Trees For Life from Dr. Jed Fahey, Moringa Researcher and author. Moring oleifera: A Review of the Medical Evidence for Its Nutritional, Therapeutic, and Prophylacatic Properties, Part 1, Jed W. Fahey, Sc.D. http://www.tfljournal.org/article.php/20051201124931586.
The original email is from Vilaiwan Sunthorn, author of a book about Moringa in Thailand. Vilaiwan had been invited to be a Moringa specialist advisor to the science students at Sathatham High School in Phangna Province, Thailand. Thanks to her knowledge of Moringa and dedication to her students a number of them recently won gold medals in several different research competitions in Thailand. They then submitted their research for competition at The First AMRON International Conference where they were awarded gold medals. Their research studies covered a variety of medical problems. Studies were conducted with patients suffering from acid reflux, artery cancer, bone fractures, chronic allergies and post cesarean surgery. Using the inspiration gained from Dr. Fahey’s work, “the students approached a study population who were given introductory education on potential medical benefits of Moringa in treating their various conditions. Of this control population, approximately 70% were very receptive to the information and achieved satisfactory improvements in their conditions, whereas 30% viewed the use of Moringa with suspicion and thus either declined or were not committed in the intake and achieved poor results.
Congratulations: Vilaiwan and students.
