suggested edit: change negative scientific tone of summary[edit]

Hi all not a normal wiki contributor but a science minded person, please mind non-formatting. I just came from the page on Mucilage which is the bulk of the extracellular matrix for plants and many other lifeforms, quoting briefly from there: "Mucilage is edible. It is used in medicine as it relieves irritation of mucous membranes by forming a protective film. " I then clicked here because it's the first link on the section there about plants high in mucilage concentration, so the negative tone here on backing surprised me. The current summary seems to indicate there is absolutely no rational reason people should use these aloe derivatives, which is simply not true. There's also a reason it's traditionally used as a _skin_ salve, it's good at putting a barrier between your vulnerable non-skin cells and the infectious world -- this extends beyond preventing infections to providing environmental cues for your body to scab/scar or not. I don't know how to write this concisely and cited for an actual edit, but I implore someone to write an edit that's more neutral or acknowledging. I am inclined to think that the cited contrary evidence is making a comparison between aloe and a competitive compound, not nothing. 04:11, 13 November 2018 (UTC)w — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2601:646:101:7FB7:B05E:8853:F769:FEAF (talk)
