Martin Lusk<luskm at weka.lincoln.ac.nz> recently asked for
info on growing Evening Primrose for oil for commercial
I would just like to point out to Martin and all others
that up to now all research in this area has been totally
UNABLE to show that this oil has any benefit to humans, with
the possible exception of Neonatal eczema, which is not a problem
and is as rare as hen's teeth.
It is true that farmers are paid to grow it, but this is NOT
because there is any known benefit to ANYONE of the oil other 
than to the farmers.
