    Though Aloe Vera juice is extremely expensive in here, I have noticed it become more and more popular. I have started using it myself as well and I do feel better than I ever did!

    Mu wife and I have moved to Central America. The first thing my wife did was plant Aloe Vera. They are a rather menacing looking plant, but she swears by the medicinal and regenerative properties. She is 40 and looks under 30 so I am hardly going to argue with the proof my own eyes see. I can see using it a lot for sunburns and razor nicks myself. Apparently the locals believe it can prevent infections too.

    Great article. I was hiking up Concepcion Volcano on the island of Ometepe, in Nicaragua, and slipped. I ended up with a broken branch stuck through the side of my knee. The guide used natural Aloe Vera, literally from a leave cut from a bush, as a cleaning agent on a rage he wiped the blood away with. It healed quickly, although I still have a scar. I have been an advocate of the Plant of Immortality ever since. (a small critique of your fine article. 6000 AD is almost 4000 years in the future. Should read 6000 BC)
