Here in Hawaii Health, a meditation upon the merits of the noni:
Deterred, no doubt, by its grotesque appearance and malodorous cachet, Eve foolishly passed up the noni in favor of the apple of the Tree of Eden. Had she not done so, the innocence and well-being of mankind might have remained uncorrupted, and contagions without number might have remained forever locked away in Pandora’s Box. Polynesians, however, not having to contend with serpents and their sly blandishments, have long since come to know what legions of testimonials are now saying: that Pandora’s Box holds little that cannot be held in abeyance by the noni.
Nana ka maka; ho`olohe ka pepeiao; pa`a ka waha. – Observe with the eyes; listen with the ears; shut the mouth. (Thus one learns).
