I'm interested in things
Agreed. The last thing we want is for supplement makers to seize on these very preliminary studies and start touting concoctions made with crappy extracts as a cure for cancer. A good example of that kind of thing that essentially turned out to be a fiasco was the whole "megavitamin/antioxidant" craze:Fair enough. I agree with your review of the study. However, we (as a kava community) should make sure we are putting the same critical analysis & critique against the anti-cancer studies as this one. I am not a huge fan of the "superfood" movement that is mostly a marketing ploy (like pomegranate juice).
That story has a lot of interesting parallels about the hazards of attempting to isolate an active ingredient of a healthy natural product and convincing people to take megadoses of it..
