according to the "american cancer society" site, there have been no 
scientific evidence that kombucha tea is helpful in helping with and/or curing 
anything, plus it has some serious side effects since it may contain contaminants such 
as molds and fungi that may cause illness (bronchitis??), and a type of acid 
(acidosis) is formed when the tea is brewed that may contain harmful germs, 
harmful especially to those with HIV, cancer and other immune problems. to make 
matters worse, occasional deaths have been reported in connection with the 
consumption of this type of tea, and if a woman is pregnant or breast feeding, 
they are ordered not to use the tea.  allergic reactions that have been 
reported, at least according to the site, have been jaundice (usually connected to 
liver damage) and anthrax of the skin.
