Source question[edit]

"It causes brain damage." Is there a source for this claim, is it an absolutely known and demonstrated fact, or just a supposition, and even if supposed, what studies support this? Whig 04:07, 7 Jun 2005 (UTC)

NPOV dispute[edit]

The "probable neurotoxic effects" also need to be properly sourced, and while I would rather not remove information which may in fact be well-established, there seems to be a POV here against use of nutmeg for psychoactive effects, based on the claim that it causes permanent harm, which may or may not even be true. Whig 04:12, 7 Jun 2005 (UTC)

I agree, and think that if nothing else the statement "It causes brain damage." needs to be removed until a reliable source can be found saying that it does. I did a Google search, and the only articles I can find which contain "myristicin" and "brain damage" are unrelated, forum discussions, or WP mirrors. Mistercow 20:33, 20 September 2005 (UTC)


Myristicin-induced neurotoxicity in human neuroblastoma SK-N-SH cells. from pubmed see that, is not an evidence but...


in order to further the completeness of this article there must be information dealing with isolation and solubilities as well as decomposition temperature, method of action, LD50, perhaps a copypasta of the history of the uses. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.101.16.212 (talk) 15:14, 23 March 2008 (UTC)
