    Student thesis: Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) - CDU


    The main aim of this thesis is to provide information to more thoroughly describe kava’s health effects and to assist policy makers to gauge the health, social and economic effects of regulatory efforts. No epidemiological study has investigated kava’s health effects in Arnhem Land since 1987. In response to continued kava use, regulators have implemented controls on kava supply and distribution in the Northern Territory. However, few data are available to provide precise regulatory guidelines.
