I occasionally get requests for more information about poi, especially its nutritional benefits. This reminded me that I have a file of 165 scanned pages of articles, and I'm glad to make it available for download.
These articles are from the 1960's to the 1980's, and we obtained them in March of 2000 from the State of Hawaii Department of Health. They range from newspaper articles ("Poi Keeps Ohio Child Alive") to scientific research papers ("Use of Poi in the Prevention of Allergic Disease in Potentially Allergic Infants," 1967).
The documents are scanned into an Adobe Acrobat (PDF) file. We have used OCR on the file, so it is fully searchable.
The 165 pages translate into a 7.42 MB file, which can take some time to download depending upon the speed of your internet connection.
Because we pay our hosting company in part based upon the volume of traffic, I'd appreciate it if you could make, say, a $2.00 contribution to our hosting bill. You can do so via the Amazon Honor System: just click the advertisement on the left, or click here.
To download the PDF file, please
