Hello all
i have just received a email-newsletter from Azarius [shop in NL]

QUOTE
Kava Kava Forbidden
Kava kava is no longer legal in Holland !! According to the Dutch health services some cases of liver damage have been reported. Although there are no reports or any scientific prove of liver damage with short term use, all Kava products have to be taken out of the market. It is expected that other European countries will follow the Dutch policy.
ENDQUOTE

I would like to add that in Greece, some days ago, there was a govermental advice to not use Kava Kava...

Actually I thought that Kava was already a controlled substance everywhere in the world besides Fiji...guess I was mistaken. Mmmmm Kava, I could go for a bowl of it right now.

I heard that on the local news a few days ago. Just sounds like hype-panic to me. I wonder how many people actually suffered liver damage from it. I bet the number is fewer than I have fingers and toes. Do they not have alcohol in that country? It's been dissolving livers for thousands of years and WE LOVE IT!!

My sister brought me back some from Fiji so I don't know if it's controlled in Ca Na Da. I can't imagine her smuggling contraband back. Didn't really care for the stuff.. kinda like a weak cocaine high. And my liver fell out of my anus the next day too... kind of soured me on the whole deal.

Yeah, I don't get this kava-kava thing. Pacific islanders in Samoa, Tonga, Fiji, Hawaii, and elsewhere have been drinking kava regularly for hundreds of years. And believe me, those guys can put down some kava. They have all-day, all-night kava ceremonies for all sorts of occasions.

Maybe the problems, if they're legit, are coming from some refined version of the plant. Or from taking it along with some other product. It's still available in the stores in Hawaii, in the natural pounded root form.
