A comment on kudzu got caught in the spam bucket and I just found it today. Kudzu has some pretty interesting qualities as a medicine. The Chinese used it 2000 years ago. Alcohol treatment is one of it’s properties. Below is the comment. I did a google search on kudzu and medicine and it is quite well documented. Here is just one of many links: http://www.peacehealth.org/KBASE/cam/hn-2119009.htm

The citations are on http://www.kudzus.blogspot.com in the links below the splash page.
Great article. Please include http://www.kokudzu.com for people who want to know how to eradicate kudzu without poisons. Jim Miller supports this experiment station and the research.
